We recognise the disruption and chaos that an ordinarily family’s lives can be thrown into and know that each parent wishes their child receives the correct and most effective treatment as soon as possible.

When things go wrong

Although each parent expects their child to be given the best medical care and treatment available to them, sadly this is not always the case.

Sometimes medical professionals can make errors in the diagnosis, treatment and care of your child.

Mistakes can include:

  • The length of time it takes to diagnose your child if they do become ill
  • Administration of incorrect drug dosage
  • Delayed or incorrect treatment
  • Surgical problems
  • Insufficient aftercare

We recognise that it is a lot harder for a young child to convey to a doctor where and why they feel ill and often critical signs of an illness can be missed. If your child’s illness or injury is not dealt with quickly we recognise that this may result in permanent illness or injury, disability or even death.
