In the past three years, British hospitals “accidentally” chopped off 105 patient limbs
By Ethan Huff // Mar 15, 2024

The United Kingdom has a serious problem with "accidental" amputations occurring at its government-run National Health Service (NHS) hospitals.

Over the last three years, British doctors "mistakenly" sliced off as many as 105 patient limbs, the latest figures show, all due to alleged medical negligence.

York and Scarborough Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, where at least six accidental accusations occurred, confirmed these figures. It also acknowledged that they reveal a serious and disturbing trend in lack of quality care across the NHS system.

The offending facilities include the aforementioned entity as well as Sheffield Teaching Hospitals, The George Eliot Hospital NHS Trust, East Kent Hospitals University Trust, Great Western Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, North Cumbria Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust, The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and Warrington and Halton Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Another 15 NHS Foundation Trusts across the U.K. have also accidentally sliced off patient limbs, though none of these are revealing how many, citing "confidentiality concerns." Estimates suggest that among the following 15, at least 82 accidental amputations have occurred:

Barnsley Hospital NHS Foundation Trust: Fewer than 10

Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust: Fewer than five

Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust: Fewer than five

Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust: Fewer than five

Mid and South Essex NHS Foundation Trust: Fewer than five

Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust: Fewer than five

Royal United Hospitals Bath NHS Foundation Trust: 15 or fewer

Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust: Fewer than five

South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust: Fewer than five

Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust: Fewer than five

The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust: Fewer than 10

University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust: Fewer than five

University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust: Fewer than five

Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust: Between one and five

Wye Valley NHS Trust: Fewer than six

U.K. emergency rooms also "mistakenly" chopping off limbs

Frimley Park Hospital in Surrey is also guilty of this type of medical malpractice and negligence after a young girl who was rushed there had all four of her limbs "mistakenly" chopped off by attending physicians.

According to reports, the girl was rushed to Frimley Park Hospital in 2023 after displaying "red flags for meningitis and sepsis," including symptoms of high temperature, fast heart rate, leg pain, vomiting and drowsiness.

Doctors should have seen all these signs and known how to proceed properly, but instead they gave the child paracetamol and discharged her. A few hours later when she developed a rash and fever, the girl's parents rushed her back to the facility where she was diagnosed with meningococcal sepsis.

A pediatric intensive care unit at another nearby hospital ended up receiving the girl, who ended up suffering multi-organ failure. The girl also required several procedures to treat her infection, one of them being a skin graft.

Because of how long it took for NHS doctors to get the diagnosis right, the girl's infection spread, resulting in above-knee amputations of both her legs and above-elbow amputations of her arms.

The family later sued the Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust for getting the diagnosis wrong, which resulted in too much time passing before their daughter had a chance to keep her limbs. The hospital ended up settling for £39 million (about $50 million).

"Money cannot bring who your daughter was back, but it can secure her future," said Judge Caspar Glyn KC to the family.
