Medical negligence, also known as clinical negligence, occurs when healthcare professionals cause physical or mental harm as a result of the care they provide. Doctors, surgeons, and nurses have a duty of care towards their patients, which obliges them to deliver treatment in accordance with the guidelines of “Good Medical Practice” set by the General Medical Council (GMC).
“Good medical practice” implies providing care at a level that a competent and qualified healthcare professional, with a similar background and expertise, would have offered under the same circumstances as the alleged incident of medical negligence.

Even with the UK’s exceptional medical care, the potential for complications exists in routine operations and procedures. The repercussions of such errors can profoundly impact individuals for a lifetime.
Mid-operation mistakes are not the only kind of failures that fall into the category of surgical errors. If your anaesthetic is not carried out properly, this could cause you unnecessary pain and distress during the operation itself.
Insufficient information about the potential risks of a suggested procedure may impact your decision regarding whether to proceed with it. It is crucial to be fully informed before making a choice.
The incorrect diagnosis of a disease or a condition can have serious repercussions.
If a medical professional incorrectly assesses your health, it can lead to complications. Failing to identify a disease or condition that worsens your health may give rise to a misdiagnosis claim.
If you receive an erroneous diagnosis and subsequent improper treatment, it can potentially exacerbate your existing ailment. It is crucial to ensure accurate medical evaluations and appropriate care to safeguard your well-being.
Alternatively, one could have good health but receive a misdiagnosis for a disease or condition they do not actually possess. An inaccurate diagnosis can lead to significant distress for both the individual and their loved ones. For instance, being wrongly diagnosed with cancer. In such cases, there may be grounds for a claim due to the emotional harm endured.
The consequences of a delayed diagnosis can be equally as detrimental as a misdiagnosis. In the majority of cases, early identification of your condition leads to more favourable outcomes. Most health issues are more manageable in their initial stages.
For diseases and conditions that can lead to terminal illness, late diagnoses can have fatal implications.
When hygiene standards are not upheld in hospitals and other healthcare facilities, the likelihood of infection becomes much greater and can cause your existing medical condition to worsen. If you have already received treatment or undergone an operation, an infection caused by poor hygiene could massively impede your recovery.
A ‘medical device’ is any product, equipment, or implant used for a medical purpose in your treatment. When these products fail, the results can be life-threatening. Strict testing standards are in place, but faults and defects do still occur.
Faults can arise in the design, manufacture, or application of the device, giving rise to claims against the negligent party in accordance with the circumstances. If the use of defective medical equipment has resulted in inadequate treatment, additional health problems, or increased pain and suffering, you may be eligible to seek compensation.

With the growing prevalence of cosmetic surgery, unfortunately, there has also been a rise in incidents of substandard practice, leading to complications. Similar to all medical procedures, errors in cosmetic surgery can have profound health implications for patients, resulting in enduring pain and lasting damage. Additionally, patients may have to shoulder the financial burden of further treatment expenses to rectify the errors that were made.
Dental negligence refers to situations where a dentist inflicts unnecessary pain or causes lasting harm due to mistakes or poor decisions. Moreover, if a dentist performs an incorrect procedure without adequately explaining the associated health risks, it can also be classified as negligent behavior.
Cases involving dental negligence are intricate, and determining fault can be challenging. It is prudent to seek guidance from an experienced solicitor who can offer expert advice on the optimal course of action before pursuing legal remedies.
