Unison has won £35. 6m in compensation payouts for members injured at work in 2000, with substantial sums going to healthcare staff. The figures include £100,000 awarded to former Cardiff Royal Infirmary staff nurse Diane Chambers, who was forced to give up her job after developing severe eczema from using rubber gloves, and £125,000 for Rhondda occupational therapist Denise Grist, who was injured testing a side-car fitted with a wheelchair. An Oldham nurse received £24,000 for back injuries - which accounted for 'a considerable number'of all claims, Unison said. A nursing auxiliary in the south-west was awarded £50,000 for a broken hip and neck injuries from tripping over trailing wires. She was forced to give up work.
