Man Awarded £5million for Medical Negligence

A Portsmouth man whose memory was destroyed by an illness linked to the herpes virus has been awarded £5million compensation by a NHS trust.

The man, an aspiring model whose identity cannot be disclosed for legal reasons, contracted herpes simplex encephalitis a number of years ago. The disease has left him with almost no spontaneous recall of recent events and he only remembers parts of his past life.

The man, whose behavioural problems mean that he doesn’t cooperate with those trying to assist him and is difficult to handle at times, was treated in 2008 at Royal Hampshire Hospital. His lawyers aver that the hospital’s treatment of him was negligent and Winchester and Eastleigh Healthcare NHS Trust admitted liability.

This week, a high court judge approved a £2.5million settlement after describing the impact of the virus on the man as ‘quite disastrous’. An index-linked tax-free payment is also to be paid annually in order to cover the cost of the man’s life long care, with the payments set to increase if early onset dementia develops.
