We are very lucky to have a healthcare system such as the NHS but that doesn’t make sub standard and negligible care acceptable. If you’ve suffered from a treatment given by the NHS you could claim for compensation. Call us today, or read on.
NHS and Hospital Negligence
Whenever we, a family member or a friend get admitted to a medical establishment we expect the best standard of care from them. When someone goes in for an operation, or a procedure, we essentially entrust them with our lives. The vast majority of the time we get excellent service from our NHS but unfortunately this isn’t always the case and a moment of negligence can cause a lifetime of problems for the patient.
As exposed in the media in recent years, there are some patients who did not even get the basic level of care. Unfortunately, there are some people who go in for a routine operation and never come back out again. At Scott Rees & Co we are here to fight your corner and get you, not only the compensation you deserve, but the care and rehabilitation you deserve as well.
Should I claim from the NHS?
If you have suffered due to the negligence of somebody charged with your care then you have every right to claim compensation for your injuries and inconvenience. The NHS may have a large task on it’s hands to deal with every medical issue brought forward by Britain’s taxpayers, all staff working for them are required to fulfil a duty of care and perform to an exceptional standard at all times. If they do not provide this and cause you injury, then they have failed that duty and you can make your claim.
