Occasionally the treatment plans put in place by doctors in hospitals are wrong.
Sometimes a particular course of treatment or therapy is clear from the diagnosis, but more often a doctor has to make a clinical decision between different ways to deal with a problem. Doctors are given this responsibility because they have the knowledge and expertise to make a judgment about the best course of action. When there is such a choice, sometimes doctors make the wrong choice and the consequences can be devastating. Whilst we cannot expect doctors to make the right decision every time, some mistakes fall so far below the standards that patients can expect that they become negligent mistakes. Our experienced team will be able to tell you which side of this line your treatment was. If you are concerned about the treatment you received in hospital, get in touch with us.
