When you go into theatre, you expect to be able to trust the professionals who will be overseeing your care whilst you are under anaesthesia – and rightly so. What you shouldn’t expect is to find out that another organ has been unnecessarily damaged, that a medical instrument has been left inside you, or that you are in excruciating pain without reason.
If you or someone that you know has experienced unnecessary suffering at the hands of a medical professional, whether a doctor, midwife or a nurse, we recommend that you get in touch with us as it is likely that there will be satisfactory evidence to bring a case of Surgical Negligence.
