Tavistock gender clinic – medical negligence advice

patient observations

The Tavistock gender clinic has been in the news over the last few years in relation to court cases and a recent interim report from Dr Hilary Cass assessing the quality of the care that had been provided.

There are fears that there are cases where minors have been provided with drugs and treatment for early transitioning where alternative considerations should have been involved. There are real worries that there could be people now who have realised that mistakes had been made when they were a minor as a patient at the Tavistock gender clinic, and who may now be impacted long term as result of the treatment they received.

This is a very sensitive issue that we as lawyers who specialise in medical negligence need to be available for to help people with. This is why we are able to provide free, no-obligation legal advice on a confidential basis to anyone who feels they need to speak to us.

Royal Derby Hospital gynaecologist investigation

hernia mesh claims

Following the initial allegations of alleged malpractice against former consultant Daniel Hay, the Royal Derby Hospital gynaecologist investigation went on to inform more women of their potential involvement in the ongoing review of his patients. To date, the doctor has reportedly been found to have “unnecessarily harmed” 8 women who had undergone significant surgery under his care.

Further developments emerged toward the end of 2020 that reportedly pushed up the total to 382 of the gynaecologist’s former patients being implicated in the investigation. It is understood that the majority of these women reportedly have no need to worry about immediate health concerns, according to the trust. However, given the length of his service at the hospital, we would not be surprised if the investigation further widened as it already has done so far.

Any women who have suffered at the hands of the gynaecologist may be eligible to claim compensation if negligence has been involved. If more victims should be identified, we are here to help them pursue recompense for the harm inflicted upon them, and eligible clients can benefit from No Win, No Fee legal representation.

Claiming compensation for a fall in a hospital

fall in a hospital

When patients are admitted to a hospital, they are there to receive necessary treatment, and often for a period of care and recovery too. We, therefore, expect hospitals to be safe environments, in which patients are cared for until they have the ability to care for themselves at home. However, if staff do not monitor and maintain the safety of the hospital environment, risks may emerge that can put patients in danger. A fall in a hospital is one example of an accident that can be provoked when organisations fail to keep hazards at bay.

A fall may seem like a minor problem, but to elderly people or those with existing mobility issues, it can cause long-term complications. As such, it is important that any potentially negligent actions that may have led to a fall are thoroughly investigated, as the affected patient may be entitled to claim medical negligence compensation.

Compensation claim for a cancelled operation

regulations and recalls

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.
