Is it right to claim against the NHS?
We believe that the NHS is a fantastic service and on the whole it provides a high standard of care to its patients. However, if something goes wrong and someone in that service causes you harm, or the standard of care provided to you was not reasonable, then you are well within your rights to make a claim.
You can make a complaint to Patient advice and liaison services (PALS) before you make a claim, but services and doctors do not always admit to something going wrong.
When you make a claim after something has gone wrong you are not only getting justice for yourself but you are highlighting the issue to the NHS so they can learn from it and avoid the same mistakes in the future.
