Neglect by Staff
In recent years, neglect by staff at care homes has featured highly in the media. Instances of physical, mental or even sexual abuse have been reported. Instances of such neglect are often the subject of clinical negligence compensation claims.
In most NHS hospitals, nursing staff levels are below optimum levels which means that if you have a stay in hospital, you may experience periods of time where you are not checked up on by a nurse.
In terms of admission due to being in labour, a delay in being seen by a midwife can have catastrophic consequences to both mum and baby. If for instance baby goes into distress during labour and an emergency C-section needs to be performed but isn’t because the midwife isn’t on hand, baby could be born with Cerebral Palsy.

Can I sue the NHS?
The NHS was created so that good healthcare should be available to all, and it is one of the country’s proudest achievements. However, if something goes wrong during your treatment you deserve answers and, where necessary, financial compensation.
We do not treat your claim lightly. However, the treatment you consider negligent must be considered unreasonable, irresponsible, and harmful.
When someone suffers an injury that impacts their live, or that of a loved one, then it is vital that the NHS has the procedures in place to both compensate the patient and learn from their mistakes.
