Failure to Comply With NICE Guidelines

We pursued a claim on behalf of our client relating to treatment which they received at a major hospital in 2012.

The client underwent an attempted endometrial ablation which had to be abandoned as a result of alleged negligence. Our client was then advised to undergo a laparoscopic subtotal hysterectomy against NICE guidelines and as such this went ahead without her informed consent. During this procedure our client sustained a perforated bladder resulting in a fistula and the need for further surgery.

We alleged that the treatment received was carried out negligently and without informed consent.

We have recently managed to settle the claim for £50,000.00.

Our Partner, Robert Rose, is the Head of our Clinical & Medical Negligence team. If you would like to discuss a compensation claim please call us on Freephone 0808 164 0808 for a free, no-obligation chat. Alternatively, you can complete the request a call back form and we will call you.
