In May 2011 the Court approved a settlement in excess of £2.8 million plus annual payments to ensure that Angela, then aged six years, gets the best care, support and education and to ensure that all he needs are met throughout her lifetime.
Angela was born at Lewisham University Hospital, London on 1 September 2005. Medical staff failed to establish an adequate labour management plan. There was also a failure to respond appropriately to abnormalities in the fetal heart monitoring (CTG), along with a failure to manage the oxytocin regime (a drug used to stimulate contractions).
During labour she was deprived of oxygen and this resulted in her suffering catastrophic brain damage. Unusually Angela does not have severe physical injuries or developmental delay but she does have considerable behavioral and communication problems meaning that she also requires waking night care as she has a very disrupted sleeping pattern.
The settlement will provide resources for her intensive and highly skilled behavioral modification programme hopefully substantially improving her own and her family’s quality of life.
Paul McNeil pursued a claim against Lewisham University Hospital. The hospital admitted medical negligence at a settlement meeting in March 2010. The settlement provides Angela with the financial assistance she needs to receive proper care, therapy, treatment and education and allow her to have the highest quality of life possible.
