£13m compensation awarded to mum of two after NHS blunders left her children severely disabled

A mum of two children who were left with lifelong disabilities due to medical errors at birth, has finally won £13million compensation.

What happened?

Paula McKay is a full-time carer for her daughter Natasha, 24, and son Patrick, 23 – both of whom have cerebral palsy after being starved of oxygen as they were delivered by the same obstetrician a year apart.

Though the now-defunct NHS trust admitted liability for Patrick’s condition; awarding him £6m, Mrs McKay had a difficult battle when it came to Natasha.

The complex medical errors that left her brain damaged did not emerge until some years later, but after two decades of campaigning she has finally won £7million.

Paula said:

“I’m relieved I no longer have to worry about what will happen
when I’m not here anymore and both will have access
to the specialist care they need and deserve.

“Also it will ensure Natasha receives excellent ongoing care that
won’t ever be affected by budget cuts. Natasha and Patrick
have been through so much in their lives and it’s been
heartbreaking to see them suffer at times due
to the injuries they were left with.”
