In August 2010, the midwives at the Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust repeatedly and negligently misclassified the CTG trace resulting in a 10 and a half hour delay in delivery.
Findley suffered catastrophic brain injury caused by deprivation of oxygen. He also sustained severe damage to his kidneys causing renal hypertension for which he may require dialysis and transplantation later in life.
Iona Meeres-Young obtained Judgment for Findley in June 2014 and Findley's mother and father's psychiatric claims were settled shortly thereafter.
After obtaining judgment for Findley, Lisa commented:
"Iona works tirelessly on our case and is always available even when I call her at weekends. Nothings ever seems like too much trouble and she has been a pillar of strength during a difficult few years. We couldn’t ask for anyone better to fight Findley's corner"
