Compensation for medical negligence

Medical negligence, sometimes referred to as clinical negligence, is when a medical professional makes a mistake or breaches their duty of care to a patient, resulting in the patient suffering an injury, their existing medical condition becoming worse or a new illness or other condition being caused. 

While medical negligence can occur due to many factors, the most common are a mistaken diagnosis being made, the wrong treatment being given, the incorrect medication being prescribed, or errors being made during surgery. 

Medical professionals include doctors, nurses and other staff working in the NHS, private hospitals and healthcare providers, specialist clinics, and GP practices. Also included are dentists, dental nurses and other staff working in dental practices as well as pharmacists in pharmacies.
