Following a nine-month trial, former Countess of Chester Hospital nurse Lucy Letby has been convicted of murdering seven babies and attempting to murder six others.
The incidents took place at the hospital’s neonatal unit between June 2015 and June 2016.
Specialist medical negligence lawyers at Irwin Mitchell represent parents affected by what happened.
Expert Opinion“This is a truly shocking case which has seen families ripped apart by the death of a baby or their child being left with serious injuries in the most horrific circumstances.
“The last few months and listening to the evidence must have taken an unimaginable toll on the families involved.
“Nothing will ever make up for what’s happened, but lessons need to be learned about the early recognition of serious and avoidable harm, and ensuring appropriate steps are taken to avoid or minimise the risk of further harm especially for the most vulnerable patients such as babies.
“If families have further questions or concerns over care provided to them, it’s vital they’re also supported to receive the answers they deserve.
“We continue to support those we represent at this incredibly difficult and emotional time.” Tim Annett, Medical Negligence lawyer
Letby was found not guilty of two counts of attempted murder and the jury was undecided on a further six counts of attempted murder.
