NHS compensation – Guidance through your NHS negligence claim

When we visit our GP or the hospital we put our trust in our doctors and nurses, and assume that they are experts in their field.

While this is mostly true, we should remember that they are only human like you and I, and humans can make mistakes.

Errors can happen for a range of reasons, such as understaffing or overworking, leaving health professionals tired and prone to making mistakes.

Minor mistakes or delays in treatment usually won’t cause you any harm, but some mistakes can really disrupt your life.

Claiming NHS compensation - What is considered NHS negligence?

Examples of medical mistakes might be:

  • A GP fails to refer a patient to a cancer specialist. Three months later they agree to refer them, by which time the cancer has progressed and spread.
  • A doctor prescribes someone a high dose of the wrong medication which makes them seriously ill and hospitalises them

Scenarios like these will clearly cause physical and emotional pain and suffering for you and your relatives. We are here to help you sue the NHS for negligence so you can look forward to your future.
