ABSTRACT
MISTAKES by junior doctors and novice midwives are blamed for �3.1billion in legal claims paid out to mothers and their babies damaged by NHS maternity care. A lack of consultants to help when things go wrong is partly responsible for more than 5,000 claims against the Health Service settled over the past ten years, a report from its Litigation Authority has shown.
