What is medical or clinical negligence?
Medical or clinical negligence is not as simple as a doctor or hospital making a mistake. It is more far reaching, and occurs when a medical professional or organisation failed in their duty of care to a patient, which results in an injury or worsening of a medical condition. It can occur during NHS or private treatment.
Medical negligence can happen to people of all walks of life, and to adults as well as children, and at times when we are least expecting it. For some, medical negligence can result in devastating consequences for the injured person and their family. There are many types of medical negligence, some examples are listed below:-
