Couple Who Accused Doctors of Turning Off Their Baby’s Life Support Without Their Consent Get Five-Figure Payout
November 19, 2018
(Daily Mail) – A couple who say they were not consulted before their newborn baby’s life support was switched off have been given a five-figure compensation payout by the NHS. Sian Hill, 26, and her partner James Towers, 29, were left heartbroken after their baby girl, Ivy, died shortly after she was born at Darlington Memorial Hospital in 2012. After reading pathologist reports some months later, they alleged that their daughter died because her life support machine had been switched off without their knowledge and brought legal action.
