Most of us receive first-class healthcare when we go into hospital or have to see the doctor. Healthcare standards in Britain are very high. However, sometimes things can go wrong, even in the best of hands. A symptom may be overlooked, a diagnosis may be missed, a course of treatment may not have the desired effect. Very occasionally errors by healthcare professionals can cause serious injury to the patient. There may be long-term adverse effects, such that the patient can no longer continue at work or requires support with care from other people. In cases of severe injury, compensation may be needed for long-term financial security, so that you know that your needs, or those of a loved one, will be met into the future.
