Injury solicitors Fochabers
In December 2013, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) released a report that found the level of care delivered by some GP surgeries around the country varied widely and that some surgeries were offering an unsatisfactory level of service. Astoundingly, one GP’s surgery was actually found to be suffering from an infestations of maggots. The CQC found that 34% of the 1,000 surgeries it visited failed to meet at least one of the required standards. In some surgeries, medication was found not to have been stored properly while some drugs kept on site were out of date, posing a serious threat to patients.
If a patient were to be given a therapeutic drug that was out of date, it’s possible that the medication in question would not have the desired effect, or worse, make a patient ill. If an out of date vaccination were to be administered to a patient, it would be possible that it would offer no protection against the condition it was supposed to vaccinate.
Pharmaceutical firms, much like food manufacturers, put use by dates on their products for a good reason; if a drug or item of food were to make someone ill, they could face legal action. If you’ve been given substandard care from a failing GP’s surgery or been handed medication that was out of date from a clinic or a pharmacy, you may have grounds to launch a claim for a personal injury pay-out with the help of 100% no win-no fee injury solicitors in Fochabers if you were made ill as a consequence.

It’s not just NHS clinics that can suffer from poor standards. If you pay for private health treatment, there will be a chance that you could suffer as a consequence of poor practices at the clinic you’re visiting. Although the CQC found that funding, or a lack of, was a major reason behind the failings of NHS GP’s surgeries up and down the country, mistakes can be made due to poor management practices. Never assume that just because you pay to go private that you will be immune from suffering at the hands of medical incompetence or malpractice.
