Why an Accurate Cancer Diagnosis Matters
Most cancer compensation claims relate to a delay or a failure to diagnose the disease. If cancer is diagnosed accurately and early enough, it gives the patient the best possible chance of recovery.
Unfortunately, sometimes the delay is long enough that the disease spreads, which can make treatment more complicated. This can mean that more extensive surgery and additional chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy are needed. The same problems can occur if the diagnosis is not accurate and the wrong course of treatment is recommended.
Where this happens the help of a specialist clinical negligence team with experience in dealing with cancer claims is important. As a team we will deal with your case with sensitivity and understanding, whilst also using our knowledge and experience to ensure that your case is fully investigated.
We have the skills and experience to ensure that your questions about treatment are answered.
