Webb v Liverpool Womens' NHS Foundation Trust

Hospital – Liability for negligence of members of staff. The claimant issued proceedings, contending that the defendant NHS Foundation Trust had handled her birth process negligently, resulting in her having a limited range of motion in her right arm. The Queen's Bench Division held that negligence was established, as the decision not to proceed to caesarean section at 13:50 had lacked logical force. However, the claimant had not established that the delivery had been negligently handled.
