Delayed diagnosis

Home » Services » Dispute resolution » Clinical negligence » Delayed diagnosis

A delayed or misdiagnosis of a condition can have a dramatic impact upon recovery and in the most serious cases can lead to a patient’s premature death.

Examples of such circumstances can include –

  • a GP failing to refer a patient for specialist input
  • inappropriate treatment being given for a medical condition
  • a healthcare provider failing to provide any treatment at all for a medical condition

All of which can result in a worst outcome for the patient.

Elizabeth and Catherine are our delayed diagnosis specialist lawyers, and they are routinely instructed on complex and high value claims of this type.

We have helped individuals and families who are experiencing first-hand the devastating consequences of a late diagnosis or wrong diagnosis of a range of conditions, including cancers, neurological problems, genetic conditions, or other health complaints which, if diagnosed early, are easily treated and can often lead to a full recovery. Such circumstances can arise not only in treatment at hospital, but also whilst in the care of GP’s, private hospitals and birthing centres.
