Medical negligence, also known as clinical negligence, is when a person has been given care below the expected standard. If you have suffered an injury, illness or other adverse outcome due to healthcare professionals failing to give you the appropriate care, then you may have a claim for medical negligence.
Medical negligence can happen in any sort of healthcare related institution whether it be publicly or privately whether you get your healthcare privately or through the NHS. It can relate to treatment from all types of healthcare professionals such as dentists, surgeons, a GP, a care home worker, a nurse, a physiotherapist or any medical professional who owes you a duty of care.
All medical professionals must exercise reasonable skill when performing their duties in order to keep their patients safe from harm. Legally, this is known as a duty of care. A doctor breaches their duty of care if they do not meet acceptable care standards.
