It’s impossible not to feel angry when I read of other babies and families who have been ‘scarred’ for life due to a lack of medical care. And it infuriates me when it’s the same hospital that grossly neglected Sofia and me – Homerton University Hospital in Hackney, East London.
A girl born six years ago was starved of oxygen while her mother was in labour. This left her paralysed in all four limbs. She has no real control of her head, but is able to smile and laugh. Last week she was awarded £5million compensation for her birth injuries. And I’m sure her mother and her grandmother have had to fight and struggle and shout to get every deserved penny.
