You could be eligible to claim clinical negligence compensation arising from the Royal Derby Hospital gynaecologist malpractice investigation.
At the Injury Lawyers, we may be able to represent you on a No Win, No Fee basis. The more women that come forward who have been affected by this, the better – as there can be strength in numbers. A large group of women who may have been subject to the gynaecologist’s alleged malpractice making compensation claims together can allow for a group or multi-party action to form, which can be beneficial for all. In any cases where someone has suffered, that is where they may be eligible to claim.
It is believed that the number of women who could be affected by issues could be around the 272 mark, which has come from the ongoing investigation data so far. If you have not been contacted by the Trust but have gone through a procedure that may form as part of this, and something has gone wrong, you could be eligible to claim.
Ongoing investigation regarding Royal Derby Hospital Gynaecologist issues
The Royal Derby Hospital is conducting an ongoing investigation after a consultant’s care has been questioned by other staff. The investigation is looking into 272 cases to see if there has been any form of potential negligence involving former patients between 2017 and 2018. All patients who could be involved and are having their care looked into should be contacted by early this month.
If you have been contacted, we would like to hear from you.
In April, the hospital announced that at least eight women, it appears, may have been “unnecessarily harmed” during their surgery by the Royal Derby Hospital Gynaecologist in question. All the women affected had undergone major surgery, such as a hysterectomy, prolapse repairs and ovary removals.
The gynaecologist in question does not currently work for Royal Derby Hospital, with their last clinical activity reportedly being in June 2018. The Trust has refused to release the consultant’s name whilst the investigation is ongoing due to ‘employee confidentiality’, so we do not know if the gynaecologist is still practising elsewhere or not.
