Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust, found not guilty of corporate manslaughter
On 21 April 2015, Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust was charged after a woman, Frances Cappuccini, died giving birth by emergency caesarean in October 2012.
The Trust was accused of corporate manslaughter and Dr Errol Cornish, 67, of Bromley, south-east London, also faced a charge of gross negligence manslaughter. It is the first time an NHS Trust has been charged with corporate manslaughter since the offence was introduced in 2008.
After the trial in January 2016, the Inner London Crown Court delivered a not guilty verdict.
