A girl who became blind after a hospital failed to detect a brain tumour has been awarded £1.5 million in compensation.

The girl, who is now 16, attended the hospital after a fall in 1999 but was sent home after the x-rays were read incorrectly.  A radiologist at the King George Hospital in England failed to spot the benign growth which later led to her losing her sight.  The patient was claiming compensation for the hospital’s negligence which in turn has caused her to lose her sight.

The trust which manages the hospital was already rated bottom out of the nearly 400 trusts across the country for its overall quality and financial management by the Care Quality Commission.  The trust was also noted as underperforming by NHS inspectors earlier this year.
