This is an increasing problem
Medical Negligence or Malpractice is an increasing problem faced by the NHS and other private medical institutions. The pressure on NHS staff to deliver a quality service is an ever increasing requirement. Most cases related to medical negligence are unreported to the authorities. Owing to the unwavering trust we put in our Doctors, there are many instances in which malpractice goes undetected.
According to the NHS litigation authority in 2013, the NHS as put aside approximately £22.7 billion to cover the costs and damages paid out for victims of medical negligence. This figure is likely to rise in the future, due to more demands on the NHS and cost budget constraints.For this reason, and the alarming rate at which medical negligence is increasing, legal action is fast becoming the best solution to not only curb this epidemic-like condition, but also provide support to victims and their families.
