Injury compensation paid out over ‘unnecessary’ surgery

A 62-year-old cancer sufferer has received a six-figure injury compensation sum after medical blunders led to the removal of some of her organs.

Christine Statham, from Bloxwich, was told by doctors at the Walsall Hospitals NHS Trust that she needed to have her bladder and reproductive organs removed, the Express and Star reports.

She was diagnosed with bladder cancer in 2006 and had a tumour removed, before being told that she required a nine-hour operation to take out the organ itself.

However, Ms Statham later discovered that she could have received radiotherapy instead of the surgery.

She told the paper: "I have lost all faith in Manor Hospital.

"I was never told radiotherapy was an option and I feel like I was mutilated for no reason."

It follows news that Barnsley Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has paid out some £700,000 in injury compensation after 19 women were affected by botched breast surgery.ADNFCR-2070-ID-19526406-ADNFCR
