Pages On: NHS Claims

The NHS is an excellent organisation that saves so many lives. Having such a resource allows the people of the UK to not constantly fret about choosing between their finances and their health. However, that does mean the NHS is under routine strain from the vast quantities of patients, as well as mismanagement from higher up. Patients can often wait weeks before seeing a GP, and months, sometimes even years, for referrals. In the event of serious illness, this can be too late to combat. There are also the chances of surgical mistakes, misdiagnosis, birth injury and a myriad of other types of medical negligence. If the NHS has failed in its duty of care to you, and you have suffered as a result, you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Damning report on how medical complaints are handled

Posted in: Medical NegligenceNHS Claims

Healthwatch Cumbria and Cumbria Health Security committees have published a damning report into how medical complaints are handled in their area. It has been found that Cumbrian patients were afraid to make complaints and that their complaints were handled “defensively” by health staff. It was also found that complaint procedures were complex and that there was a general lack of understanding amongst staff of the procedures. NHS complaint handling was also found to be lagging behind recommended targets. The report has called for health and social care workers across Cumbria to adopt a…

Swine flu vaccine compensation cases blocked

Posted in: Medical NegligenceNHS Claims

When doctors realised that the sharp rise in narcolepsy cases was related to the swine flu vaccine Pandemrix, they immediately withdrew it. Now, however, the government is being bombarded by several medical negligence compensation claims, which government lawyers are attempting to block. The Pandemrix vaccine was produced by pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and was administered to over 6 million people in Britain and millions across Europe during 2009-10’s swine flu pandemic. A 12-year-old boy, who remains anonymous, received a compensation payout of £120,000 in June after he was left severely…

Unsafe level of senior doctors and desperate shortage of nurses

Posted in: Medical NegligenceNHS Claims

Recent inspections have discovered the dangerously low levels of senior doctors within the North Cumbria University Hospitals Trust. The health trust, criticised over its high death rates, was one of the 11 trusts placed under ‘special measures’ in 2013. The Care Quality Commission (CQC) said that while improvements have been recognisable, staffing issues remain unaddressed by the trust.  Inspections were carried out at West Cumberland Hospital in Whitehaven, Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle, and the midwifery-led birthing service at Penrith Community Hospital between 31 March and 2 April this year.

Two hospitals ban paramedic for whistleblowing

Posted in: Medical NegligenceNHS Claims

Two hospitals in Worcestershire have banned a whistleblower paramedic after he spoke out about severe overcrowding in their accident and emergency departments. Stuart Gardner, of the West Midlands Ambulance Service, had the ban imposed on him after detailing the extreme pressure that the A&E units were dealing with, describing them as “not safe” to the BBC. Following this, the chief operating officer (COO) of Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust told him that he was no longer welcome at either of its hospitals. It was heard that the ban was placed…

Potentially high risk hospital still needs to make improvements

Posted in: Medical NegligenceNHS Claims

Four months after a hospital was rated “potentially high risk”, inspectors found that there is still a lot of room for improvement. A Care Quality Commission report rated Kettering Hospital as on the verge of being ‘high risk’, with the report flagging up problems regarding the A&E department, the medical care being provided (especially for the elderly), and surgical procedures. Four months later, inspectors have identified improvements, but said that the trust is still not providing a particularly high standard of care to patients. The initial inspection was carried out in…

NHS cash shortage 'harmful' to care standards

Posted in: Medical NegligenceNHS Claims

Figures released last week have highlighted that the cash shortage within the NHS is potentially harmful to care standards. Following the Stafford Hospital scandal last year, the NHS has been pushing to improve the level of care provided by the UK’s hospitals. Experts, however, say that financial pressures will make this exceedingly difficult. Inquiry chair Robert Francis QC said that it is unacceptable for hospital leaders to act like they can continue to improve the level of care without adequate funding. He said that hospital leaders have to be “frank” about the level…

NHS Lanarkshire has apologised after a patient became infected with hepatitis C during their time at hospital. The health board said that they were unsure as to how the patient became infected with the blood-borne virus, but said that infection control procedures at their hospitals had been tightened as a result. The patient had been at Monklands Hospital in April 2012 when the virus was detected, alongside seven other patients who were all checked for the infection. Hepatitis C is an infection usually contracted through blood-to-blood contact, but can sometimes be transmitted…

Health secretary demands that NHS workers apologise for poor care

The health secretary, Jeremy Hunt, said that doctors and nurses must start apologising directly to patients if things to wrong. He said that a ‘culture of defensiveness’ has developed, which is no longer welcomed by the NHS. Doctors and nurses will be encouraged to be honest with patients when accidents occur, taking a step towards patients regaining trust in the NHS.     It has been found that staff across England and Wales are reluctant to apologise to patients following medical negligence through a fear of admitting legal liability or ‘making the…

Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust has apologised for a recent incident involving a patient leaving surgery with a needle still inside them. It was discovered that, despite the patient having left the operating theatre at the end of the procedure, one of the surgical needles had been left under the patient’s skin.

Hospital fails to protect patients from Legionnaires’ disease

Posted in: Medical NegligenceNHS Claims

Basildon Hospital’s inability to control legionella bacteria has resulted in the deaths of two people since 2007, a court has heard. The Essex-based hospital has been criticised for their high mortality rates after a fatal legionella infestation killed two patients and infected six others over the last 6 years. The hospital “apologised severely” in January for failing to abide by the Health and Safety at Work Act, and was sentenced at Chelmsford Crown Court on Wednesday. The deaths of 74-year-old James Compton from Billericay (who died in 2007), and 54-year-old Raymond…

Two never events are investigated in Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital

Posted in: Medical NegligenceNHS Claims

What the Department of Health calls “never events” have occurred twice in a hospital in Devon last month. One of the said ‘events’ involved a blood transfusion of the wrong blood type, and the other comprised an unneeded angiogram – whereby a tube is fed into the patient’s heart. Both of these uncontrolled, and particularly invasive, procedures have caused a lot of questions to be asked regarding the safety of the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital’s service. Hospital managers have confirmed that they are currently investigating the reasoning behind these fatal errors. “Never…

Government tackles medical ‘never events’

In particular, the Government has focused on improving patient safety by reducing the occurrence of so called ‘never events’ throughout Britain’s hospitals. Never events Never events are serious patient safety incidents that, by definition, should never happen.
