Freedom of information request details
FOI request date:
The following information was requested:
I am writing to request information under The Freedom of Information (FOI) Act 2000. It is requested that you provide information on:
• The total amount of Wrongful Conception claims brought against the National Health Service from the years 2000 to 2019.
• What percentage of those claims each year were successful.
• The total cost of the successful claims for the respective years.
In these cases, the parents of the child bring a claim against the NHS for the additional costs of raising a child whom, but for the doctor negligently performing a failed sterilisation procedure, would not have been conceived.
