Legal advice about poor mental health services

medical negligence

Poor mental health services can have a devastating impact on the victim, and it’s something that needs to be addressed in this day and age.

As with any other medical issue, a patient needs to be diagnosed and treated in a timely fashion. However, some patients are finding it increasingly difficult to access the mental health services that they require, and delays can cause harm to patients. In the worst-case scenarios, delays can lead to patient deaths, which is why this is an important issue to address.

People who suffer from delays and diagnosis problems when it comes to mental health services can be entitled to make a claim for compensation.

Ian Paterson inquiry: a damning report

Surgery compensation claims

The contents of a report following the Ian Paterson inquiry reflects the severity of his actions and the failure to stop what he was doing.

The rogue surgeon, who is currently serving a 20-year jail sentence following a criminal hearing that took place in 2017, intentionally carried out needless operations on his victims. The report has suggested that over 1,000 procedures were done without any requirement, and the inquiry recommends that some 11,000 patients may need to be recalled to identify if there are any more.

Although this issue has been ongoing for some time, news of the inquiry report comes in the wake of alarming revelations about another Spire Hospital consultant, Habib Rahman, who has also been accused of conducting needless operations.

Habib Rahman Spire Healthcare recall victims: compensation advice

surgeon claims

Victims of the recent Spire Hospital recall affecting, so far, 217 patients of Mr Habib Rahman could be entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation on a No Win, No Fee basis.

Australian vaginal mesh court case victory welcome

Justice Court

We welcome the recent successful ruling in the Australian vaginal mesh court case that has been widely publicised in recent weeks.

We continue to act for a number of women who have suffered with complications and injuries that arise from the use of vaginal mesh in England and Wales. News of the victory in Australia is welcome as we know how badly women can suffer when things go wrong. In fact, some patients can be left with serious and permanent problems.

These can be difficult cases to succeed with, so any success stories around the world is always welcome news, although the decision won’t have any direct bearing on cases here. The wider fight for justice is ongoing, and we continue to help people here on a No Win, No Fee basis.

Families come forward in wake of Shrewsbury and Telford maternity scandal

care home negligence

More families have come forward to speak to the inquiry into the recently discovered Shrewsbury and Telford maternity scandal.

There are families who have been battling for justice for years that are now a part of hundreds of families speaking to the inquiry. Others who had no idea something wrong had even happened have had their eyes opened since news of the scandal hit the headlines and are also coming forward.

The leaked report from November will hopefully allow more victims and families to receive the justice and closure they need from the 40-year scandal. Special measures must be put in place to also ensure that there’s never a repeat of this scandal ever again.

Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust medical negligence advice

doctor papers

The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust (SATH) maternity scandal has been labelled the “largest maternity scandal in NHS history”.

It centres around a leaked internal report that appears to outline some 40 years of potentially substandard and negligent care, and there may be around 600 cases where failures have taken place. Dozens of deaths and cases of children being left with permanent and life-altering brain damage are being blamed on inadequate care and advice. It’s a tragic story, and as specialist medical negligence lawyers, all we can do is offer our support and advice for those who need it.

It’s understood that there may be previous cases and complaints that the Trust has dismissed that now need looking into. If that applies to you, or where you believe you or someone you love has been affected by issues at the Trust, we may be able to help.

Claiming compensation for vaginal mesh removal

When vaginal mesh removal has become a requirement, it’s important for victims to know that they may be able to make a claim for personal injury compensation.

Our expert injury lawyers are representing a number of patients who have suffered horrendous complications that have arisen from TVT mesh implants. Some of the problems that can be caused mean that women must undergo an additional procedure to try and remove the implant, and in some cases, this isn’t always possible. In some cases, women can be left with defective implants inside for the rest of their lives.

Given that this is such a serious problem, what can women do when the need for removal leaves them with pain and suffering?
