There is always a risk that you or a family member could suffer negligence at the hands of a trusted medical advisor or a hospital at some point in your lifetime.

Many law firms do general personal injury work, but only certain firms have the expertise to deliver the service and results needed by those who have suffered because of a medical mistake. When medical treatment or surgery is required, a huge amount of trust is placed in the medical advisors. Usually correct advice and treatment is given, but when mistakes are made the individual may be left with a devastating outcome or even worse, death resulting from the negligence.

Complaint Against Medical Advisor

As well as pursuing a medical negligence claim through a lawyer, some patients may also want to take their own steps to make a separate complaint against the treating doctor or hospital. There are various schemes to deal with complaints against doctors and hospitals. In some cases, they award small amounts of compensation or make an official apology.

If you are not happy with the response from your doctor/hospital, the next step is to request an independent inquiry. The Independent Complaints Advocacy Service or the Patient Advice and Liaison Service may be able to help you with this. If your complaint is more general, then it should be referred to the Health Service Ombudsman.

If your complaint is more serious – for example if there is evidence that the doctor treating you was not qualified - the General Medical Council (GMC) may investigate your case. The GMC discipline doctors and identify those who may not be competent enough to practice medicine. Although the GMC cannot award compensation, many patients feel it is necessary to involve them to prevent the accident being repeated.
