Most patients who receive medical care in NHS centres across the UK are treated very well. The high-quality care rendered by the NHS means patients do not have any problems. However, things do go wrong on occasion. While we appreciate and understand the pressure under which our doctors discharge their duty, NHS negligence is never a justifiable end to any medical procedure. Fortunately, our NHS negligence solicitors are here to help.
What is NHS Negligence?
NHS negligence happens when a healthcare provider – a doctor, nurse, surgeon or medical institution – provides care that falls below the acceptable standard. If you have suffered an injury or illness as a result of NHS negligence, you may be entitled to an NHS claim. Our NHS negligence solicitors in Liverpool offer specialist advice and support across a range of NHS negligence cases, to help our clients secure the maximum compensation they deserve.
How Do I Know if I Have Been an NHS Negligence Victim?
Your healthcare provider will likely not be forthcoming when it comes to accepting responsibility for the injury or illness you have suffered. So, patients or their loved ones will have to take on this responsibility; they need to understand what happened and whether it falls below the acceptable standard of care. If the patient feels something went wrong with the medical care of the patient’s family observed something that has given them concern, it is at this point the patient and family should record the event, in case there is an injury.

GP Negligence Claims
If you believe that your GP lawyer or doctor has acted negligently during your treatment, our solicitors can help you. GPs are generally expected to manage the daily needs of patients and refer them to specialist medical practitioners for specific needs. However, they may fail to identify a symptom, incorrectly diagnose a patient or even refer the patient to a wrong specialist. Any of these actions can be classed as negligent treatment. If it has caused you an injury or illness or worsened your medical condition, you may be entitled to a claim.
Dental Negligence Claims
Examples of dental negligence include misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, incorrect diagnosis, nerve injury, cosmetic related problems and errors in treatment leading to tooth loss. If you have been a victim of negligent treatment at the hands of a dental professional, you may be entitled to a claim.

These claims can be made against institutions such as the Royal Liverpool University Hospital, the Spire Liverpool Hospital, the Broadgreen Hospital, and other main hospitals in Liverpool.
