McGuinn v Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust

Negligence – Professional person. The Queen's Bench Division allowed the claimant's claim in part, regarding alleged failures in clinical care leading up to the birth of her daughter. The standards of care carried out at two scans had been inappropriately low, and no reasonable clinician should have failed to appreciate from the scans that the fetus had been at risk of suffering from microcephaly and that further investigation had been required.
