Medical, or clinical, negligence is when a healthcare provider fails to uphold an adequate standard of care.
Most people will require medical support at some point during their life, whether it’s from a GP/doctor, nurse, dentist, surgeon, optician or midwife. The consequences of medical negligence can be serious and result in permanent damage, psychological trauma or even death.
The most common breaches in the duty of care include:
- Delayed diagnosis, missed diagnosis and delayed referral
- Careless procedures
- Failure to warn of treatment risks
- Medical errors
- Failure to obtain proper consent.
