Spina bifida baby claim

As the number of medical negligence claims continues to rise, a Wembley woman is heading for court with what is believed to be a unique claim that she was deprived of the chance to have an abortion and instead gave birth to a spina bifida baby. Christine O'Sullivan accuses Northwick Park and St Marks NHS Trust, of Northwick Park Hospital, Watford Road, Harrow, of negligently failing to properly read an ultra-sound scan. She says as a result she was deprived of the opportunity to have a termination of pregnancy and gave birth to the baby suffering from spina

bifida on 17 September 1993.
