£1.5 million paid out to staff at Lucy Letby hospital.

According to a TaxPayers' Alliance investigation staff at the Countess of Chester Hospital, where Lucy Letby murdered 7 babies, took home more than £1.5 million in performance bonuses. Since 2018, its staff have received 459 Clinical Excellence Awards, the NHS equivalent of a performance bonus. Out of the total, £792,001 was received by the hospital in 2022/23, whilst the Leby trail was going on. 


Elliot Keck, head of campaigns at the TaxPayers' Alliance, which carried out the research, said:

"Taxpayers will have serious questions about the culture within the Health Service, given the money being handed out to one of Britain's most notorious trusts.

"And with the missing information perfectly aligning to one of the darkest periods in the trust's history, there will also be concerns about a cover-up.

"The NHS needs to learn that it has to be transparent and open with the taxpayers who fund it and with patients who rely on it."
