How The NHS Has Failed In Their Duties Of Care
Has The NHS Failed In Association To Their Duty Of Care?
Each person that undergoes treatments by the NHS has rights. This is true whether you receive treatments from a hospital, your GP, or therapy services like a counsellor or physiotherapist.
NHS negligence occurs when your own rights have not been upheld. This will mean that the person or the people that have treated you has failed in providing you with adequate duty-of-care and have failed to follow the regulations like the NHS constitution. For example, they have not taken the necessary steps to prevent further harm or pain or have failed to maintain your safety.
A few examples of NHS negligence can include:
- Not supplying the right prescriptions or medication errors
- Delayed or a missed diagnosis
- Dental errors
- Surgical errors
- Contracting a hospital related infections like MRSA
- Needle-related injuries
