Medical Negligence Assist has created this guide to help people living in the London Borough of Hillingdon, who have been harmed because of medical negligence, also known -as clinical negligence or medical malpractice. We will start by defining medical negligence. All medical practitioners such as doctors, nurses, dentists or anaesthetists have a legal duty of care towards their patients. This means that they are legally obliged to take all possible precautions to provide the patient with the best possible standard of care. If a medical practitioner delivers substandard care to a patient that they are treating and the patient becomes injured, ill, or finds that their existing medical condition has worsened as a result, this is defined as medical negligence.
In this guide, we have included advice for NHS claimants and private healthcare claimants. Call Medical Negligence Assist, to begin your medical negligence compensation claims process as soon as possible.
We will now look at what criteria to look for when choosing a solicitor. This includes whether or not you need to use a local solicitors firm, and how to assess the suitability of a solicitor.
When choosing a medical negligence solicitor, you may wish to look at online medical negligence solicitor reviews to help you decide which firm to go with. You could see if previous clients were happy with the service they received and could also see if the firm has a particular area of expertise. To find solicitor reviews online, go to an online search engine like Google and type terms such as “medical negligence solicitors in my area” or “medical negligence solicitors in Hillingdon” into the search bar. Any online reviews that have been written, should be included in the search results.

We are now going to look at some common examples of medical negligence payouts that our panel of expert medical negligence solicitors could handle.
We all rely on our local GP to treat us if we are suffering from a minor illness or injury. It is also the job of a GP to refer us to a specialist department at a hospital if we are showing signs of a serious medical condition, for diagnosis and treatment. Whilst most GP surgeries are run to a high standard, incidents of medical negligence at a doctor’s surgery can happen. This could include a doctor failing to spot the signs of a serious illness, so it worsens over time, or misdiagnosing a patient and offering the wrong treatment, causing further illness in addition. GP negligence could also involve a GP prescribing the wrong medication, or too high a dose of medication, which could result in adverse consequences. If you have been injured or ill because of medical negligence, you could claim against a GP, for compensation.
As you probably already know, cancer is a time-bound disease that spreads and worsens over time, making it harder to treat. This means the sooner the cancer is diagnosed and treatment can begin, the greater chance the patient has of surviving the disease. A delayed cancer diagnosis which happened because a GP failed to spot possible signs of cancer and refer a patient to a specialist department for a diagnosis, or an oncologist misdiagnosing cancer, is negligence. As a result, the cancer may have worsened, and the patient may need a more aggressive form of treatment. In many cases, the patient could die because of what would have been a preventable death, had the cancer been diagnosed sooner.
If you have experienced a misdiagnosis of cancer and had your condition worsened as a result, you could be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries. In the very tragic circumstances that a loved one suffered from a delayed diagnosis of cancer, or cancer misdiagnosis, and this resulted in them dying unnecessarily, you could be entitled to claim a medical negligence death payout on their behalf. Our panel of medical negligence solicitors can cover the Borough of Hillingdon area, so call today for your free personal injury claims consultation to get started.
Have you been injured, ill or had your existing medical condition worsened because of negligence in surgery? When a patient undergoes surgery, they require the highest standards of care. It’s shocking to think that medical negligence may happen at such a critical time when the patient is so vulnerable, but unfortunately, it could and does happen. Common surgical errors include incorrect site surgery (where the wrong part of a patient’s body is operated on), a foreign body being left inside the patient, nerve damage and injuries caused by incorrect use of anaesthetic.

It is important that before, during and after childbirth, both the mother and infant receive the highest possible standards of medical care. This is because birth injuries caused by negligence on the part of a midwife, doctor or other medical practitioner may leave the mother or child with lifelong injuries or disabilities. Examples of this include the infant being deprived of oxygen at birth, which could cause brain damage and injuries such as Hypoxia. Or if the medical staff use the wrongs tools to deliver the baby, this may cause broken or fractured bones. Have you or your child been injured, made ill or developed a disability because of birth injury negligence in Hillingdon? Then please contact one of our impartial, expert legal advisors for more information.
Unfortunately, patients could also be harmed by medical negligence when sitting in the dentist’s chair. Some examples of where dental staff have been negligent and this has caused the patient further harm are, misdiagnosing periodontal disease or failing to spot the signs of oral cancer. Other examples of medical negligence could include a dentist extracting the wrong tooth, or a“botched” cosmetic dentistry procedure, causing a patient psychological harm if their physical appearance is damaged as a result.
