    Claiming compensation for NHS failings


    People put a lot of trust in medical professionals and it is generally expected that they will be able to accurately diagnose you and treat you accordingly. Doctors, nurses, dental practitioners and healthcare professionals have a duty of care to the public to ensure that they are in safe hands and are cared for to the standards expected of them.

    This means that professionals should examine a patient thoroughly, take their complaints seriously and consider sending patients to a specialist for further testing as soon as possible. It also means that they have a duty to communicate with administration and other medical professionals to ensure that you receive the best care possible.

    Medical negligence may occur when the standard of care received by a patient is lower than is expected of the medical professionals involved. This means your illness may go undiagnosed for a period of time or you may suffer an injury due to a lapse in care. Your illness may also progress if care is not given quickly enough. If you are thinking of claiming compensation for NHS failings and you have suffered injuries or a prolonged illness as a result, you can contact Accident Advice Helpline for representation.

    Cases of medical negligence

    Medical negligence may involve a failure to diagnose an illness or it may involve a misdiagnosis which could make your current condition worse. There may be an administration error causing you to receive the wrong information or even the wrong medication.

    If you have been referred to a specialist, you may experience delays which could cause your condition to progress. Another example of potential medical negligence is botched surgery, whether it is dental surgery, cosmetic surgery or surgery to treat a medical condition. If you are thinking of claiming compensation for NHS failings, Accident Advice Helpline can assist you.
