It’s not just about ‘fault’! You have rights if you are mistreated, or have waited too long for your treatment.

Sometimes no matter how hard people try, things can go wrong. Sadly this is also true of the medical care we receive, and doctors are under a legal duty to take reasonable care of you.

And the pandemic meant significant delays and cancellations for millions of patients. The NHS has set aside £1.3bn to address compensation claims for treatment delays, cancellations and misdiagnosis arising during the pandemic.

Do you have a claim?

Here are the 3 key things, any one of which suggest you or a loved one, may have a claim for medical negligence…

  • All medical staff try their hardest to provide you with the best quality care, but occasionally that care falls below acceptable standards and mistakes are made. Have you suffered what you think is a ‘mistake’, or sub-standard care?
  • NHS waiting lists are higher than ever, some people are waiting so long to start their care that their health really suffers. With record waiting lists and more than 1 in 8 of us now waiting for treatment, have you waited so long that your health has now deteriorated further?
  • ONS data suggests there have been more than 1,000 excess deaths per week in the UK recently. Have you lost someone because of excessive waiting for diagnosis or treatment?

If you can answer YES to any one of the above then you may have a legitimate claim - and that's where we can help
