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.

NHS delay compensation claims set to increase?

medical negligence

We may be seeing increased numbers of NHS delay compensation claims as figures released by the National Audit Office paint a worrying picture.

A lot of the medical negligence compensation claims we represent people for involve delays to diagnosis and delays to treatment. In some cases, a delay can be the difference between life and death, and patients can suffer further pain and complications when they’re not treated properly – and quickly – enough.

With almost half of medical negligence claims related to delays in treatment and diagnosis, this is a real concern.

injury lawyers home service

Whatever you do, make sure that you don’t leave it too late to get started with your hernia mesh lawsuit, or you can risk missing the chance to claim.

With these types of cases, there can be a number of timeframes and deadlines in which to get started with your claim for compensation. If you miss one of them, it may mean that you’re unable to make a claim at all. That means potentially missing out on thousands of pounds in damages that should be rightfully yours.

Almost £600m in Xarelto compensation settlements

medical

Xarelto compensation settlements have been agreed in the sum of $775m (which is almost £600m) for some 25,000 cases being pursued in the U.S.

The Injury Lawyers have been fighting for justice for UK users of the medication, that’s also known as Rivaroxaban. Although the settlement is for the U.S. only, we’re pleased to see it has happened.

The settlement has been agreed without any admission of liability from the two companies behind the drug, Bayer AG and Johnson & Johnson. They reportedly maintain that the drug is fine for use and strongly deny the allegations that have been made against them. That includes previous allegations of a “cover-up” where important information was reportedly withheld from regulators.
