A High Court judge has approved a £12m compensation agreement for a seven-year-old boy left severely disabled after an abnormal heartbeat was not 'acted upon' during his birth, lawyers said.
Toby Hart, of Bedale, North Yorkshire, will need 24-hour care for the rest of his life.
Mr and Mrs Hart later said they hoped that the NHS would invest in better midwife training.
Lawyers said a settlement had been agreed with the South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
The hospital has apologised to the Hart family.
