Spire Healthcare recall for patients of Habib Rahman

surgery negligence

Spire Healthcare has launched a recall for hundreds of patients of orthopaedic surgeon Habib Rahman over fears of unnecessary surgical procedures being carried out.

It’s understood that 217 patients have been contacted by letter with invitations to see an independent consultant to review any treatment they have received. The recall comes after an investigation was completed by the Royal College of Surgeons at the end of last year, with concerns raised about unnecessary shoulder manipulation operations carried out under general anaesthetic.

If you have been informed that you are affected by this recall, our specialist medical negligence lawyers are here to help you.

When cancer is diagnosed too late

drugs issues

When cancer is diagnosed too late, the impact for the patient can be absolutely devastating. That’s why it’s important for us to address this topic as specialist medical negligence lawyers.

The chances of surviving cancer, in many cases, can be hugely increased by being diagnosed and treated early. If there are any delays in the process, this could be the difference between life and death, and it’s shortages in skilled staff that can lead to this happening. There also needs to be a clear plan for the future, where population numbers will increase, and services need to expand to meet the greater demand.

Patients who are affected by late diagnosis or late treatment issues can be entitled to some form of justice by making a claim for personal injury compensation.
