There’s no question – the NHS is an invaluable and world-leading service. Millions of treatments are provided every year and, in most cases, patients receive the highest standard of care.
But medical professionals are only human and mistakes can happen. Unfortunately, there are times when our experience of the NHS falls below the standard we’re used to. And if you’ve suffered due to the poor quality of care you received, it’s only right that you take action and seek financial justice.
Straightforward claims against the NHS
NHS negligence can have many serious consequences.
For example, it may have caused a physical illness, injury, or made a pre-existing condition worse – and this is likely to have affected many aspects of your life. You may no longer be able to do things you once did, your mental health may have been affected and you could be suffering financially.
It’s a difficult time and, we understand, you may feel nervous about starting a legal case against the NHS. But it’s important to seek compensation. Not only could the money support your recovery, NHS medical negligence claims shine a light on concerning safety issues – and often help to prevent the same mistake from happening again. And we’re here to guide you every step of the way.

Help for all cases of NHS negligence
NHS negligence cases typically arise due to a member of staff doing something wrong or failing to act. This could be a doctor, nurse, physiotherapist, radiologist, dietician, lab technician or even a hospital porter – anyone with a ‘duty of care’. And some of the most common examples include:
- medication errors
- a missed or delayed diagnosis
- misdiagnosis or failure to treat
- delay in treatment
- surgical errors
- anaesthetic errors
- needle-related injuries
- contracting a hospital infection (e.g. MRSA)
- laboratory mistakes (e.g. false or missing test results)
- negligent personal care (that leads to wound infections, pressure sores etc.)
Of course, NHS medical negligence can also vary greatly in terms of its aftereffects. Whilst a small injury is likely to heal quickly, a missed diagnosis can have life-changing – or even life-threatening – repercussions. But whatever the nature or severity of your experience, we should be able to help.
