Whilst suing the nhs might seem drastic, you deserve compensation if you have been left with serious complications from negligent incidents.

What is Malpractice?

Medical malpractice has an element of intent attached to it that negligence does not. Malpractice is a breach in the duty of care by a medical provider. The provider was aware at the time that they had done something that breached a duty of care, for example they knowingly did something that could harm / risk a patient or should have done something and did not take action knowing that failure to do so could harm a patient.

What is Negligence?

Negligence is when a mistake is made without knowledge or intent. When a medical provider makes a “mistake” in treating a patient and the mistake results in harm to a patient, this is negligence. An example of negligence would be a nurse leaving a gauze in a wound while assisting in an operating theater before a surgeon applies stitches. Neither had intent to leave the gauze in the wound, it was a mistake. Misdiagnosis is another common form of negligence where a medical provider fails to diagnose. This was not intentional but possibly could have been due to a lack of knowledge or experience.
