Pages On: NHS Claims

The NHS is an excellent organisation that saves so many lives. Having such a resource allows the people of the UK to not constantly fret about choosing between their finances and their health. However, that does mean the NHS is under routine strain from the vast quantities of patients, as well as mismanagement from higher up. Patients can often wait weeks before seeing a GP, and months, sometimes even years, for referrals. In the event of serious illness, this can be too late to combat. There are also the chances of surgical mistakes, misdiagnosis, birth injury and a myriad of other types of medical negligence. If the NHS has failed in its duty of care to you, and you have suffered as a result, you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Man dies of septicaemia following hospital operation

Posted in: Medical NegligenceNHS ClaimsWrongful & Accidental Death

Staff at the Royal Derby Hospital grossly failed to care for Simon Tulitt, 62, who died of septicaemia three days after an operation for colon cancer on 31 May 2013, an inquest heard. Derby and Derbyshire assistant coroner, Paul McCandless told the inquest that the neglect had “directly contributed” to Mr Tullit’s death. Investigations found that correct antibiotics had not been administered to the patient from Yoxall which could have avoided Mr Tullit contracting E-Coli septicaemia, a recognised complication of the surgery. “death directly contributed to by neglect” Mr McCandless ordered Derby…

NHS 111 ‘dangerously understaffed’

Posted in: Medical NegligenceNHS Claims

A former NHS 111 helpline employer has spoken up about how “dangerously understaffed” the 111 helpline is, with 75% of calls going unanswered as a result. Irsah Tahir had been an NHS 111 call handler in the Derby centre before leaving as a result of the “massive” pressure. She said that the helpline was “swamped” with calls, resulting in the majority of them going unanswered. She added that nurses were often not available to provide assistance, so call staff were forced to provide medical advice. The organisation that runs the…

Report reveals NHS is failing vulnerable patients

Posted in: Leg InjuriesMedical NegligenceNHS Claims

An NHS Ombudsman report has revealed how vulnerable patients are being failed by the health service. The report referenced three cases where patients had received terribly inadequate care and treatment. The report described the findings as ‘devastating and shocking’.  One example was of a baby who suffered severe brain damage following serious medical mistakes. The baby had developed jaundice a day after it had been born at a London hospital, and required immediate medical treatment involving a blood transfusion. The doctors and nurses involved in the treatment procedure took more blood from…

Clinic bosses have confirmed that after three patients died at Lister Hospital’s Surgicentre following routine surgery, the NHS has taken it under tight control. The privately run NHS hospital in Stevenage provided routine surgery in areas such as throat, ear and nose, trauma, gynaecology, orthopaedics and ophthalmology for referred NHS patients, but was failed by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) last year in four out of five areas.

I can’t rate this company highly enough. I was very sceptical at first as I had not had any dealings with this sort of thing but believe you me, they were very good to me right from the start. There is no pushing you to do anything you don’t want to do, they are always simply sympathetic with your plight. I didn’t think I’d stood a chance but they came through for me for which I am very grateful. Believe you me they are first class.
