NHS waiting times Christmas 2019

medical negligence

It’s that time of year when we may see NHS waiting times increase, and there may be cases of the so-called “winter crisis” hitting our healthcare service again.

The NHS is already underfunded, and when we hit the winter months, the strain on services can increase. We’re also set to have a particularly cold winter this year which may also make matters worse.

But patient safety must always remain the priority. Whatever happens, patients should not suffer as a result of negligence from A&E or from anywhere else. If they do, we know that lives can be turned upside down, and that’s where our legal advice and specialist help is needed.

Medical negligence for NHS waiting times

When it comes to making a claim for medical negligence compensation that arises from increased NHS waiting times, we must establish that there has been some form of negligence.

We know and expect there to be an additional strain on services in winter, so increased waiting times alone are not always cause for a case. Whether a claim can be made or not usually comes down to whether a patient has suffered more unnecessarily or where complications arise. If these are directly linked to something like a failure to treat or refer a patient for care in time, that’s when you may be eligible to make a claim.

Patients need to be dealt with on the basis of urgent care needs, and this in itself can lead to a case of negligence. Those with urgent needs must be prioritised, and when they aren’t, a claim can arise.

No Win, No Fee representation

A valid claim that arises from negligent NHS waiting times can be a case that we can offer No Win, No Fee representation for if we believe there are prospects to succeed.

We offer this because we’re huge believers in access to justice. We simply don’t think that it would be fair if you had to pay us upfront for a case or pay us if the claim doesn’t succeed. All that we ask is that you comply with the terms of the agreement we have in place with you, and if a case doesn’t win, we can write off our legal fees.

It’s that simple.
