Cancer Negligence

Although many cancers can be successfully treated, it is vital that patients receive the best possible standard of care as early as possible. Misdiagnosis or delays in diagnosing cancer can significantly affect a patient’s recovery or chances of survival and can be devastating for both the individual concerned and their loved ones.

If you are coming to terms with a diagnosis of cancer or have recently lost a loved one and are concerned about the standard of care you have received, our professional clinical negligence lawyers can discuss your case with you and help you to decide whether to pursue a clinical negligence claim.

At Express Solicitors we understand how devastating it can be to see a loved one suffer as a result of a late diagnosis of cancer. We know that your primary concern will be to find out what went wrong and seek an explanation or apology and to prevent the same mistakes from happening again in future.

Our clinical negligence lawyers have the specialist expertise to advise on a range of cancer claims including:

  • Delays in GP referrals for further investigation or tests
  • Misreporting of scans, smear slides or biopsies
  • Delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis of many different types of cancer including:
  • Bowel cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Lymphoma
  • Cervical cancer and misreporting of slides
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Gynaecological cancers

If you have suffered delayed or misdiagnosis of cancer you may be able to claim compensation for clinical negligence that can help you to deal with the medical issues which may arise as a result of your illness. Our specialist clinical negligence lawyers can also advise you about making a formal complaint under the NHS Complaints Procedure.
