Every day in the UK people suffer and even die because the medical treatment that they receive isn't as good as it could be, even though when we go into our doctors, hospital or dentist etc we do so with a belief that we are in the safest hands possible.
In general the medical treatment that we receive is of the highest standards and the medical practitioners that we trust ensure our duty of care is upheld. Accidents sadly do happen and some of these accidents come as the result of our duty of care being breeched.
Over the years medical practitioners such as doctors, nurses and dentists, to name just a few have been found in breech of their duty of care for aspects such as the following:
- Failed or delayed diagnosis
- Failure to warn of risks in treatment
- Failure to obtain proper consent to treatment
- Medication errors
- Careless surgical procedure
- Delayed referral to specialists
- Meningitis Compensation
- Orthopaedic Compensation Claims
- Incorrect Prescriptions or Administration of Drugs
- Pregnancy and Birth Injuries
- Gynaecology Medical Negligence
- Anaesthetic Awareness Compensation Claims
- Cancer Misdiagnosis
- Cosmetic Surgery Medical Negligence
Anyone who works in the medical profession and has a say in the treatment of a patient owes that patient a duty of care and everything should be done to ensure that the patient is as safe as they can be.
