Are you claiming compensation in Tewkesbury because of failed anaesthesia?
If you’re undergoing medical treatment, it may be necessary for you to have a local or a general anaesthetic. Whilst a local anaesthetic will affect only part of your body, a general anaesthetic may be used for more serious treatments, such as operations.
Although most people are concerned with the actions of the surgeon during an operation, the conduct of the anaesthetist should be equally important. It is the responsibility of the anaesthetist to monitor you during the procedure and provide the relevant amount of anaesthesia to keep you sedated. If they fail to do this you could wake up too early or you could suffer an overdose which could be fatal.
If there are complications with your surgery, it is possible that it could be linked back to the anaesthetist. If they are shown to have made an error or caused you to suffer in any way, you may be able to start claiming compensation in Tewkesbury from the hospital.
Although most hospitals in the United Kingdom are run by the NHS, they are a number of private hospitals which operate as well. If you’ve been hurt or injured because of an act of medical negligence, you could be eligible to receive compensation in Tewkesbury regardless of whether you were treated in an NHS hospital or in a privately run facility.
