Though many patients receive the highest levels of care through Britain's NHS, mistakes certainly can happen. Dealing with any sort of health condition can be difficult enough in itself, but if you feel that you have not received the adequate duty of care from your doctors or other health professionals, it can make the situation much worse.

If you have been, or are being, treated by the NHS, you are entitled to basic human rights – this is true whether you have visited your local GP, received treatment in hospital or visited a physiotherapist or counsellor.

If you believe that any of the doctors, nurses or therapists that have treated you have failed to provide adequate duty of care, or not followed regulations to keep you safe or prevent further pain or harm, you may be entitled to claim compensation from the NHS for any injuries or health issues you may have sustained as a result.

At Forbes, our expert team of solicitors can provide legal advice about a range of NHS negligence claims, including:

  • Misdiagnosis, which can lead to incorrect or delayed treatment
  • Dental negligence, causing damage to the teeth, gums and jaw
  • Prescription errors, which can lead to delayed or incorrect treatment
  • Sustained injuries during or after surgery
  • Neonatal and birth injuries to either the mother or the child
  • NHS 'never events', these include all serious medical errors that are completely preventable, such as the incorrect surgery being carried out
