About Medical Negligence
Most people consider themselves fortunate to have access to the UK’s healthcare system. We all know the NHS does an excellent job in the face of difficult financial restraints, but sometimes mistakes do happen. Given the type of service that healthcare professionals provide, both through the NHS and privately, it is inevitable that when mistakes are made they can have potentially far-reaching and damaging consequences for a patient. The law accepts and understands that (with rare exceptions) medical practitioners have trained in medicine in order to help people and that they do not set out with the intention to cause their patients any harm. Nevertheless where the provision of a service, care or treatment has fallen below an acceptable standard which has caused you loss or suffering, you are entitled to claim.
