When we are seriously ill or injured, we rely on hospitals and their tireless team of staff to take care of us. Hospitals deal with short term and long term treatment, emergency cases and operations. Individuals showing signs of more serious medical conditions are also sent to hospitals to see specialists for diagnostic purposes, for example, someone showing signs of cancer will be referred to a specialist who could investigate further.
Unfortunately, improper applications of proper medical standards may result in hospital negligence. This could be private hospital negligence or NHS negligence. We have included some examples of potential hospital medical negligence below:
- Anaesthetic related complications.
- Surgical errors causing the patient an unnecessary injury.
- Errors in the dispensing or dosage of a medication causing illness.
- Misdiagnosis of an illness, disease or medical condition allowing the condition to worsen.
If you have been injured, made ill or had your existing medical condition worsened by medical negligence at an NHS hospital or private hospital, you could be entitled to compensation. Call Medical Negligence Assist today, to see if you are entitled to claim compensation. If you have legitimate grounds to claim, we will provide you with an excellent medical negligence solicitor to handle your claim.
In rare instances, medical negligence could happen during surgery if standards are allowed to fall. In extreme cases, this could happen because of a lack of communication between medical staff. For example, a doctor could write the wrong notes for a patient, telling a surgeon to amputate the wrong leg, or operate on the wrong organ. These are extreme cases with very serious consequences for the patient. Other issues may include a complication relating to anaesthetic, infections or foreign bodies becoming stuck inside a patient.
If you have been injured or had your medical condition worsened because of negligence during surgery, speak to Medical Negligence Assist about claiming compensation.

Maternity negligence may include doctors, nurses or midwives making medical mistakes or misdiagnosing a mother’s condition during pregnancy. In order to pursue a claim though such maternity negligence must have had an effect on the foetus’ health or the expectant mother. Alternatively, medical negligence could happen during childbirth for example; failing to notice distress in the foetus or using the wrong delivery tools which have caused injuries. This could cause birth injuries that may have lifelong effects. If the foetus is not correctly monitored, the medical staff may miss signs of hypoxia in the foetus, which could cause the child to develop cerebral palsy.

Therefore having a doctor misdiagnose cancer, or dismiss the symptoms of cancer is a devastating ordeal to go through.

When we, or our families become ill or injured, a GP is often the first port of call.

Unfortunately, if GP’s do not recognise that patients need to be transferred for testing or to see a specialist then their condition maybe allowed to worsen. Instances of misdiagnosis may include prescribing the wrong dosage or type of medicine, failing to spot the signs of a serious illness, or or not providing the necessary treatment that is needed.
