Pages On: NHS Claims

The NHS is an excellent organisation that saves so many lives. Having such a resource allows the people of the UK to not constantly fret about choosing between their finances and their health. However, that does mean the NHS is under routine strain from the vast quantities of patients, as well as mismanagement from higher up. Patients can often wait weeks before seeing a GP, and months, sometimes even years, for referrals. In the event of serious illness, this can be too late to combat. There are also the chances of surgical mistakes, misdiagnosis, birth injury and a myriad of other types of medical negligence. If the NHS has failed in its duty of care to you, and you have suffered as a result, you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Medical Negligence Leaves British Soap-Star Unable to Walk After Botched Hip Operation

Posted in: Hip InjuriesMedical NegligenceNHS Claims

As further proof that negligent medical care can affect anyone, a 63-year-old “Coronation Street” star from Manchester has had to learn to walk again after a botched hip operation. After a consultant described the surgery – which left her in dismay for months – as rarely successful for women her age, Beverley Callard is suing the hospital which carried out the procedure. Callard, who plays Liz McDonald on the show, suddenly left the program after taking a two-week sabbatical to have routine keyhole surgery on her damaged hip, and some…

In the biggest NHS recall ever recorded, 22,000 dental patients have been recalled, and some tested for HIV and hepatitis after Nottingham dentist, Desmond D’Mello, was secretly filmed by a colleague who suspected his hygiene practices.  Mr D’Mello was found to have been reusing dirty gloves and failing to sterilise equipment in his practise.  This has been described as the “biggest recall in NHS history” and many of those recalled have threatened legal action as a result.  The footage, which was filmed in secret, has been requested to be viewed…

Posted in: Medical NegligenceNHS Claims

According to recently released figures, NHS England has paid out a total of £1.1billion to patients affected by medical negligence. The figures were released by the Medical Defense Union (MDU) in reaction to the publication of the NHS litigation authority’s (NHSLA) accounts for 2014/15, showing the figure paid out in legal claims on behalf of NHS Trusts in England. The MDU said that this scale of compensation payouts could not continue for much longer.  The MDU argued that this amount of compensation could have funded over eight million MRI scans,…

Surgeons must publish mortality rates

Posted in: Medical NegligenceNHS Claims

NHS England’s medical director, Sir Bruce Keogh, has warned all surgeons that if they fail to publish their mortality rates, they could face sanctions. Sir Bruce said that this step had to be taken to improve the safety of patients within the NHS, with penalties being enforced if this regulation is not followed.  On Wednesday performance data for around 5,000 surgeons in England is to be released online. Despite this new regulation, many surgeons have contested this change, arguing that mortality rates can often be misleading.  The point has also…

Surgeon responsible for fatal bug wins disclosure case

Posted in: Medical NegligenceNHS ClaimsWrongful & Accidental Death

After five patients died as a result of a surgeon’s poor treatment, the High Court has ruled that he cannot be forced into telling future patients about his clinical history. John Lu worked at Nottingham’s Trent Cardiac Centre, where he infected 11 patients and killed 5. The investigation into Mr Lu’s standard of practice was sparked as a result of numerous patients becoming infected with an antibiotic-resistant strain of bacteria, where he was found to be the common source.

NHS Trust faces 79 negligence claims

Posted in: Medical NegligenceNHS Claims

While solicitors investigate claims against Mid Staffordshire hospitals, they also plan to probe 79 negligence claims against two Lancashire hospitals.  The claims stand against two of the East Lancashire NHS Trust’s hospitals: the Royal Blackburn and Burnley General Hospitals. The trust was put under ‘special measures’ last month following the Keogh Inquiry. Sir Bruce Keogh’s investigation was sparked as a result of investigating high death rates in Mid-Staffordshire hospitals, which then led to the discovery of many more offending trusts across England.  Let down by poor care standards, the East Lancashire…

I can’t rate this company highly enough. I was very sceptical at first as I had not had any dealings with this sort of thing but believe you me, they were very good to me right from the start. There is no pushing you to do anything you don’t want to do, they are always simply sympathetic with your plight. I didn’t think I’d stood a chance but they came through for me for which I am very grateful. Believe you me they are first class.
