Negligence in Cancer Treatment
The healthcare treatment for cancer in the UK and Ireland is generally very good. However, there are occasions when treatment falls below an acceptable level which causes an problems such as the cancer spreading or becoming untreatable. Common examples of negligence we have dealt with in relation to cancer claims include mistreatment, misdiagnosis and delay in diagnosis.
The nature of most forms of cancer means that they need to be identified as early as possible in order to be more easily treated. When there is an unacceptable delay in diagnosis it can often lead to preventable problems arising and the cancer worsening as a result.
