NHS and private medical negligence claims

AVMAThe NHS in England alone deals with over 1 million patients every 36 hours and in the vast majority of cases the care and treatment provided is first class. However, resources are stretched, and so there are occasions when things go wrong and mistakes are made which can have serious, and sometimes life-changing, consequences for patients. Mistakes also happen in private clinics in the UK where treatment has been sought from a private doctor, anaesthetist, dentist or nurse.

If you have received medical treatment from the NHS or a private healthcare practitioner and this has resulted in an injury, worsening of an existing condition or a deterioration in your health, you could be the victim of medical negligence.  If so, you may be entitled to compensation for any physical and mental suffering and for any financial costs you have incurred.  The solicitors at QualitySolicitors Bradbury Roberts & Raby in Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire are experts in the law of medical negligence in the NHS and private sector and can advise you on whether you have a claim as well as seeking compensation on your behalf.
