Medical misdiagnosis – is there a claim?
By Jonathan Jackson – Associate Director. Published 3 May 2018.
This week’s headlines have been dominated by a news story regarding potential medical misdiagnosis by a single Neurology consultant based at the Belfast Health Trust. The news reports have estimated that up to 2500 patients under the consultant’s care could be affected.
As a result, the Trust are now recalling all patients to assess their condition and treatment. This is undoubtedly a very anxious time for many patients affected. In the event of misdiagnosis, a patient may have a claim against the Health Trust.
