Hysterectomy patient Hayley Sanders secures payout

A woman who underwent a hysterectomy at the age of 19 because of an untreated infection, has received "significant five-figure" compensation.

Hayley Sanders, now 23, gave birth to her son Jayden at Birmingham's Heartlands Hospital in December 2009.

She was discharged despite having a high temperature, before being rushed back in for a hysterectomy.

The Heart of England NHS trust did not admit liability, but made the payment and wished Ms Sanders "all the best".
