As reported by BBC News, Warrington and Halton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust were recently criticized by the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman for ‘unacceptable’ delays in performing surgery on a patient suffering with bladder cancer.
The patient sadly died after a 6 month wait for surgery. The Parliamentary Ombudsman remarked that in failing to perform the surgery, the patient was not given ‘the best possible chance of survival’. Unfortunately at Graystons we come across other similar cases. We have been able to help the victims and their families who find themselves in such circumstances and are able to help secure compensation for the future.
If you or a loved one believe you have suffered harm because of a delay in performing surgery, one of our specialist clinical negligence solicitors would be happy to speak with you and advise you on your options, including a formal complaint and a legal claim. There is no initial charge for discussing this with us and we will talk you through your options, including how to fund a case and the possibility of a no win no fee arrangement (conditional fee agreement or CFA).”
