Medical negligence, also referred to as clinical negligence, occurs when healthcare professionals cause physical or mental harm through the care they provide. Doctors, surgeons, and nurses have a duty of care to their patients, obligated to provide treatment in compliance with the guidelines outlined in the “Good Medical Practice” by the General Medical Council (GMC).
“Good medical practice” requires providing care on par with a competent and qualified healthcare professional, possessing similar background and expertise, under similar circumstances of alleged medical negligence.

Despite the UK’s renowned high standards of medical care, there is always a lingering possibility that even in routine operations and procedures, unforeseen complications may arise. These unexpected errors can have far-reaching consequences for the unfortunate victims, impacting their lives in profound and lasting ways. Whether it is a minor mishap or a major medical incident, the aftermath of such mistakes can leave individuals grappling with physical, emotional, and psychological challenges for the remainder of their existence.
Surgical errors encompass more than just mid-operation mistakes. Improperly conducted anaesthesia can inflict unnecessary pain and distress during the procedure. Likewise, inadequate disclosure of potential risks may impact your decision to proceed with a proposed treatment.
The incorrect diagnosis of a disease or a condition can have serious repercussions.
If a healthcare provider wrongly assesses your health as good, despite the presence of an underlying condition, it can lead to detrimental consequences. In cases where a disease or ailment goes unnoticed by them, contributing to the deterioration of your health, you may have grounds to pursue a misdiagnosis claim.
Alternatively, you could be examined and then diagnosed with the wrong ailment. If you then go on to receive incorrect treatment, this could potentially aggravate the ailment you do have.
Conversely, it is possible to be in good health while being erroneously diagnosed with a disease or condition that does not truly afflict you. Such an inaccurate diagnosis can inflict unwarranted anguish upon both you and your dear ones. For instance, being misdiagnosed with cancer can be deeply distressing. In such cases, you may have a potential basis for seeking compensation, owing to the emotional harm endured.
Late diagnosis can be equally detrimental as misdiagnosis. In the majority of cases, the earlier your condition is identified, the more favorable the outcome. Most health issues are more manageable during their initial stages. However, in the case of diseases and conditions that can result in terminal illness, delayed diagnoses may have fatal consequences.
When hygiene standards are not upheld in hospitals and other healthcare facilities, the risk of infection significantly increases, which can exacerbate your existing medical condition. If you have already received treatment or undergone surgery, an infection resulting from poor hygiene could heavily impede your recovery process.
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 a device, leading to claims against the party responsible for negligence. If you have experienced ineffective medical equipment, resulting in failed treatment, additional health problems, or prolonged suffering, you may be eligible for 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 encompasses situations where a dentist inflicts unnecessary pain or causes lasting harm due to mistakes or poor decisions. Additionally, if a dentist performs an incorrect procedure without fully explaining the associated health risks, this can also be considered negligent behaviour.
Cases involving dental negligence are complex and establishing fault can be challenging. Before pursuing legal action, it is advisable to seek guidance from a seasoned solicitor who can provide expert advice on the best course of action.
