Damages awarded for birth-related injury

A 15-year-old boy has been awarded £6.5 million to meet the costs of his care requirements after a hospital error led to him suffering severe brain damage shortly after birth, reports the BBC.

Ewan Waker was sent home from hospital by midwives at Harold Wood Hospital in Havering, despite blood tests revealing that he had very low blood sugar levels. The severity of his condition was only picked up when a community midwife visited him and his mother at home.

The error led to Ewan suffering severe brain damage and needing specialist care for the rest of his life.
