Woman awarded medical negligence damages
A woman has been awarded an undisclosed medical negligence compensation settlement after errors made in a surgical procedure resulted in her fallopian tubes being removed without her consent.
According to the Bootle Times, Gillian Hanlon underwent an operation at the Liverpool Women's Hospital - an institution managed by the Liverpool Women's Hospital NHS Trust - in November 2005 during which this area of her reproductive system was removed by mistake by medical professionals there.
Mrs Hanlon, who is now 32 years old, was having surgery on the gynaecological condition endometriosis after doctors had advised her that this may increase the likelihood of her conceiving a child following a course of IVF treatment and a miscarriage.
However, the procedure went wrong and resulted in her chances of having a baby being reduced, meaning she has now been awarded a cash sum and a formal apology, the news source added.
"No matter how much money you get or how many apologies you get I will never get over it," Mrs Hanlon commented.
