    Claiming compensation for NHS cancer care


    Receiving a diagnosis of cancer – regardless of the type – is both shocking and hard to come to terms with. It takes some adjustment and strength of character to go through this situation, especially when treatment is to be faced as well.

    To find yourself in a situation therefore where you may suspect you have cancer only to be given the all-clear, is very different indeed. Unfortunately there is the potential for some of these cases to turn out to be cancer in the end – and this can reduce the quality and quantity of life someone can have as a result.

    In other cases where cancer is correctly and quickly diagnosed, the proper treatment should always be provided as quickly as possible. Unfortunately there have been some cases where this has potentially not turned out to be the case.

    This is why some people are found to be claiming compensation for NHS cancer care, if they believe there is good reason and cause to do so. This can vastly change the outcome and outlook for someone who has been diagnosed with cancer. It can also be more stressful to go through than it would otherwise be.

    Is this type of situation quite common?

    No – thankfully the majority of people who receive any kind of care through the NHS each day are treated exceptionally well and in the proper manner. The cases we are talking about here do crop up, but they are very much the exception to the norm. There must be evidence that negligence has played a part in these cases when they reach court. Negligence is by far a rarity in the NHS thanks to the excellent work performed day in, day out by those working for the organisation.
