Compensation claims for gynaecology negligence can be some of the most severe and serious types of cases that we take on for people on a No Win, No Fee basis.
This intimate and sensitive area can leave patients with lifelong physical, mental and interpersonal complications when an injury is sustained. As specialist Medical Negligence Lawyers, we understand the severity of the harm that can be caused and what we can do about it from a legal perspective.
As we often say, we cannot turn back the clocks. But, what we can do is fight for some form of justice for you by way of a clinical negligence claim for compensation.
The strain on the NHS, which has only worsened since the outbreak of Covid-19, is often responsible for the cancellation of appointments and surgical procedures. In fact, hospitals have reportedly been forced to admit far fewer patients for non-coronavirus conditions in the past year. Some figures suggest that the volume of people admitted for routine treatment in hospitals was reportedly down by almost half in February 2021 when compared with the same month in 2020. If you have been adversely affected by an incident of negligence, that is when you may be able to make a claim for a cancelled operation.
In our experience, many patients are unsure of their rights when it comes to cancelled operations, which is why it is important that those affected seek legal advice to establish what their next steps can be. This is particularly vital in cases where the cancellation has had an irreversible impact on your health.
As specialists in medical negligence, we are here to support you through the uncertainties of cancelled treatment; standing up for your rights to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve. Anyone who needs to discuss the impact of a cancelled appointment and what their legal rights are can contact us for free, no-obligation advice.
