Birth complications and disability

Freedom of information request details

FOI request date:

Service: Claims Management Specialty: Obstetrics

The following information was requested on 7 January 2019:

I want access to NHS England trusts figures on the total cost in compensation payouts for complications during birth for the last two years where the child has been left with a disability. Whether the child is disabled is in line with the definition provided in the Equality Act 2010 found here on the government website: 

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/equality-actguidance

I want the reasoning behind each of the payouts also listed with dates of each payout if this information is recorded. If you do not hold this additional data I expect you to identify the organisation that do, to the best of the trust’s knowledge.
