Doctors missed cancer symptoms: advice

doctor on laptop computer

Cases where doctors missed cancer symptoms can lead to severe and lifelong complications and can of course be life-threatening. Having the right legal support in place can be important.

We know it’s never nice to have to make a claim for medical negligence compensation. We know that it’s never nice to even have to engage a lawyer either. We know that this is probably a difficult time for you, and you’ve got plenty of things to be doing other than speaking to a law firm.

But we are here for you as well. It’s not just a compensation claim when it’s a matter as serious as cancer being missed. With our specialist, senor legal team whose focus is on serious cases, we can also be a much-needed support network for you.

NHS cancer screening programmes under heavy criticism

help

NHS cancer screening programmes in the UK have come in for some heavy criticism after MP reviews deem systems as “unfit for purpose”.

It’s understood that there are some 360 different IT systems being used by the NHS for bowel, breast and cervical cancer screening. Some of those systems are 30 years old, and programmes “consistently fail” to hit targets.

This is worrying news that comes a year on from the NHS breast cancer screening scandal of 2018 which saw hundreds of thousands of women miss out on lifesaving check-ups because an IT glitch meant their invitation for screening was never sent. We’re taking legal action over that particular scandal having been approached for help and representation.

Compensation for cancer treatment too late

nhs care in crisis

You may be able to make a medical negligence compensation claim if you receive cancer treatment too late, and this has an impact on your health.

Recent figures have indicated that the NHS is unable to hit their targets when it comes to starting treatment for cancer care in England. As many as a quarter of patients may be receiving treatment after the date they ought to have started treatment by. This is believed to stem from increased pressure from large volumes of patients seeking help, and is also likely linked to funding constraints as well.

We know the devastating impact that receiving cancer treatment too late can have on patients as a law firm who specialise in serious medical negligence cases. Here’s some advice about what to do if you have suffered due to starting your treatment too late.

The Injury Lawyers investigating valsartan side effects

drugs

The Injury Lawyers are investigating certain valsartan side effects and the potential links between the recall and the possible contamination issues.

In 2018, a Class 1 Medicines Recall was initiated by the MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency). This is understood to be Europe-wide, and is for the products supplied by Actavis Group PTC (now Accord) and Dexcel Pharma Ltd. The recall came into immediate effect, and healthcare organisations were asked to quarantine unused lots of the blood pressure meds right away.

The issue is quite a worrying one. The potential contamination that’s understood to have stemmed from the manufacturing process could be linked to cancer.

Breast cancer screening compensation advice

nhs care in crisis

Our specialist Medical Negligence Lawyers may be able to help you claim breast cancer screening compensation on a No Win, No Fee basis.

We’re already fighting in the legal action from the error that hit the news last year where women did not receive their invitations for life-saving screening. The issue, reported in May last year, related to an IT glitch in 2009 that resulted in thousands of letters not being sent out to women aged between 68 and 71.

Some women in the category of patients who didn’t receive their letter developed breast cancer, and some are no longer with us. We’ve agreed to help anyone who needs to claim breast cancer screening compensation, and we’ve agreed to assist on a No Win, No Fee basis. This is the case for those caught in in last year’s scandal, and potentially for other Claimants with similar issues as well.
