A delayed or mis-diagnosis 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.
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.
If you or a loved have been wrongly diagnosed or have experienced a late diagnosis, the team at Wollens will be happy to advise you and guide you through the legal process.
