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.

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 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.
A delayed diagnosis can be as detrimental as a misdiagnosis. In the majority of cases, early identification of your condition yields better outcomes. The timely detection of most health issues enhances their treatability during the initial stages. However, for diseases and conditions that may result in terminal illness, delayed diagnoses can have fatal consequences.
Inadequate maintenance of hygiene standards in hospitals and healthcare facilities significantly heightens the risk of infections, potentially exacerbating existing medical conditions. For those who have undergone treatment or surgery, an infection resulting from poor hygiene measures can severely hinder the recovery process. It is imperative to ensure stringent hygiene practices to safeguard and optimize the health outcomes of patients.
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.
