Daniel Hay Derby Trust Gynaecologist and Obstetrician Claims

We are representing many women have concerns over Mr Hay and his management of their care and treatment. Freeths are working with the Hospital Trust and their legal representatives to enable us to investigate all claims as efficiently and sensitively as possible.

Derby investigation into Mr Daniel Hay, Consultant Gynaecologist and Obstetrician

In early 2020 investigations were commenced by NHS England and University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust. The treatment under initial investigation related to major surgical procedures performed between 2015 – 2018 at Derby Royal Hospital by Mr Daniel Hay, Consultant and Surgeon in Obstetrics and Gynaecology. The initial investigation found that some women had suffered “unnecessary harm”.

The investigation was later extended to include Derby Royal Hospital and Ripley Hospital, consisting of major surgery, minor surgical procedures and outpatient treatment. The Derby Trust has now contacted nearly 400 women who were treated by Mr Daniel Hay.

Freeths involvement in the investigation so far

We have been contacted by a large number of women who have concerns about the treatment they received from Mr Daniel Hay. Many have received letters from the Hospital Trust confirming their care is under review.

We are also representing many women who have not been contacted by the Hospital Trust, and yet they too have concerns over Mr Hay and his management of their care and treatment. Freeths are working with the Hospital Trust and their legal representatives to enable us to investigate all claims as efficiently and sensitively as possible. A procedure called a Claims Handling Agreement has been negotiated to fund this large group of claims (also called a Group Action). This will also allow for a prompt and independent review of treatment provided by Mr Hay.

We are aware that Mr Hay has worked in other locations during his career, including Chesterfield and Nottingham. We also have been contacted by women treated in these locations who have concerns about treatment they have been provided with by Mr Daniel Hay.
