Misdiagnosis or Late Diagnosis of Diabetes

Helping people affected by NHS Negligence. Call us today for free impartial advice.

Diabetes is a significant and growing problem in the United Kingdom as the population ages and more people become overweight. More than 1.5m suffer from the disease and it is estimated to account for 10% of the overall NHS budget in the UK.

It is also a major killer. Diabetes is the underlying cause of a range of serious or fatal conditions, including heart disease, stroke and kidney disease and can also lead to blindness and limb amputations.

Symptoms Include Thirst, Tiredness, Frequent Urination, Blurred Vision and Weight Loss

If these problems are to be avoided, early diagnosis is essential. Symptoms include thirst, tiredness, frequent urination, blurred vision and weight loss but in too many cases, patients can have the condition for years before it is picked up by doctors. If you have become seriously ill or have a family member affected by the late diagnosis of diabetes, you may have a claim for medical negligence compensation and should seek expert medical negligence legal advice as soon as possible.

Can I sue the NHS?

Before making a claim it is worth taking note of the following point.

Check that your medical issues are grounds for negligence, and not a simple complaint procedure. Complaints about procedure dissatisfaction, or seeking an apology / admission for lack of care / treatment should go to PALS. Read more about suing the nhs.

When you might have a claim

Injury, continuous pain or loss due to the act of a practitioner or general lack of care at the NHS is an entirely different matter. You might very well have a claim. The duty of care might have been breached meaning the health care professional/s did not provide the expected level of care. If you believe you deserve compensation you may have a medical negligence claim. Read more about how to claim against the NHS here.
