The Faculty of Public Health sets standards for public health specialists in the UK and was established as a charitable organisation in 1972. Made up of the three Royal Colleges of Physicians of the UK (Edinburgh, Glasgow and London), the Faculty of Public Health is a member of the World Federation of Public Health Associations. The organisation is an independent body and supports over 3,300 public health professionals from a range of backgrounds, including academic and clinical.
The charity’s aims are to promote the health and well-being of the public by promoting public health knowledge, ensuring the public health workforce is effective and advocating the best conditions for good health. If you have received sub-standard care from an organisation or health professional supported by the Faculty of Public Health, you can usually complain to the organisation or individual in question. If you have been injured due to medical negligence at a hospital, your complaint will be against the NHS trust which manages that hospital.
Have you received sub-standard medical care?
If you have been the victim of medical negligence – for example, if you have been prescribed the wrong medication or have received a delayed diagnosis which has negatively impacted your health – you may be able to claim compensation, although there is usually a three year time limit in which to do so. The first step is to contact a personal injury lawyer, who will be able to tell you whether you have a viable claim. They will need to establish whether medical negligence has occurred, and may consult with specialists in the field in question. The amount of compensation you’ll receive will take into account your pain and suffering, any ongoing care or treatment you may need and any loss of earnings suffered due to time off work.
