Negligence – Personal injury. The claimant, a former firefighter, who had suffered a stroke following brain surgery, failed, on the facts, to establish that the defendant NHS trust was liable for clinical negligence. However, the Queen's Bench Division held that the claim, alleging lack of informed consent, succeeded, in part, and that, on the facts, the claimant had succeeded in establishing that the breach of duty had caused the stroke that he had suffered.
