In 2012/13 the NHS litigation authority received 10,129 claims in regards to clinical negligence; and this number is set to rise.
The technical standard of UK medical care is generally operated withi...
n a high standard. Regrettably, like all government funded public services, our standard of health care has suffered from cost saving and cost-cutting measures. As such, our medical professionals are forced to do more with less. In a bid to save money and become more efficient, medical judgements can be rushed and mistakes can be made.
Whilst many of us sympathise with difficult situation front line workers are battling with, such errors in judgement can lead to crippling repercussions for victims and their families. So where patients are mistreated, or where they experience medical negligence first hand, many will look into making a claim against the NHS.
Some victims who suffer such an ordeal, often neglect to seek legal advice. These individuals may be unaware of their rights to make an NHS claim, some may write it off as an unavoidable medical error.
It is important for victims of medical negligence to come forward. By holding medical authorities to account for their malpractice, we can prevent such errors from reoccurring; so in making an NHS claim, not only will you be compensated for your inconvenience, but you will also be helping others to avoid further injury in future
