Yesterday, on 6 August 2020, the Government published the above White Paper. The purpose of the White Paper is to do the following: “Planning for the future, landmark reforms to speed up and modernise the planning system and get the country building”.
Recent research by the BBC found that 1 in 8 patients experience delays in handover by ambulance crews on arrival to hospital, with many patients then waiting in corridors or in extreme cases being turned away.
Whilst the causes of delays may be outside of the hands of staff, the effects cannot be ignored. For patients with relatively minor injuries delays are understandably frustrating, but for patients with time sensitive conditions any delay in being seen by a doctor can be catastrophic. In patients with signs of stroke, sepsis or cardiac complaints a delay could result in a poor outcome, significantly prolonged recovery period or even death.
At Anthony Collins Solicitors, we act for clients or their families where serious injuries or death have been caused by delays in diagnosis or treatment of medical emergencies. If you, or someone you know, would like to know more about the services we provide, and how we have successfully brought claims against hospitals where there has been a delay in diagnosis of a medical condition, whatever the cause, then please contact us. We are happy to talk to you on a free no obligation basis.
If you require any further information or wish to speak to any of our team, please contact Christopher Frankling or call 0121 200 3242.
