Many people have been affected by cancer, either directly or through someone they know and while treatment and results are improving steadily it remains one of the most significant and life changing events a person can experience.

We understand that you or a member of your family will have had to come to terms with the physical and emotional effects of cancer. You may even have lost a loved one. To have concerns about the diagnosis or treatment received can add to the burden and cause even more stress and worry.

When things go wrong

There are certain circumstances when a GP or hospital doctor should reasonably suspect and refer a patient for investigation and that investigation should lead to a correct diagnosis and timely treatment.

Sometimes this doesn’t happen and if there is a delay in correctly diagnosing cancer it could have an impact on the patient’s life expectancy, the type of treatment available to them and the length of time that treatment will last.

In some cases, this delay has been caused by the negligence of a doctor or medical establishment and that negligence has had an impact on the patient’s chances of recovery. Our solicitors have considerable experience in handling this difficult and sensitive area of clinical negligence.
