Spire Healthcare is the second-biggest provider of private healthcare in the United Kingdom. It was founded in 2007 and it currently operates a network of 10 clinics and 38 private hospitals across the United Kingdom. It also has a fertility centre in London. If you have been injured at any of these facilities because of medical negligence, you will potentially be thinking about securing compensation. In this guide, we will reveal everything that you need to know about making a medical negligence claim. This includes details on different types of medical negligence cases that you could make, as well as advice on how to make a medical negligence claim against Spire Healthcare. We could potentially also provide you with information on the sort of compensation that you may receive for a clinical negligence claim.
Before we can start talking about the medical negligence claim process, it is important to define what medical negligence is. Medical negligence is when a patient receives substandard care from a medical professional and this has resulted in their current condition getting worse or them suffering another injury or illness. There are a number of different ways that medical negligence could happen, for example, surgical mistakes, incorrect treatment, and misdiagnosis.
In recent years, the sale of private healthcare has increased falling in line with the news that the NHS is going through a crisis. The most recent statistics for 2015 show that more than 4 million people have private medical cover in the United Kingdom. There have also been statistics regarding the number of medical negligence claims that have been made. Unfortunately, there is not a lot of information regarding the private sector. However, the NHS Resolution published an annual report for the 2016 to 2017 period, whereby there were more than 17,000 claims brought against the NHS, so this could give some level of understanding.
You may be worried that your treatment is going to be impacted if you make a negligence injury claim. A healthcare or medical negligence claim should not impact your treatment. If you do have any concerns about this though, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us. We will advise you on your rights for a Spire Healthcare medical negligence claim and in some cases, although this is very rare, we will provide you with the assistance you need so that you could transfer your care to a different hospital and have full peace of mind.
There are many different forms of medical negligence that could lead to a Spire Healthcare clinical negligence claim. In the upcoming sections, we will take a look at the different types of medical negligence in further detail to give you a better understanding. However, if you cannot find the sort of accident that you have experienced, please do not panic. You could potentially still be able to move forward with making a medical negligence claim. We are simply looking at some of the most common cases in this guide.
You will likely be able to make a medical negligence claim if you have suffered medical negligence because you have been prescribed the wrong medication or you have been given the wrong quantity of medication. If you are prescribed the wrong medication, this could give you unwanted symptoms and it could interfere with the treatment that you are currently undergoing. We could help you get the compensation that you deserve for an error like this as part of a medical negligence claim.
We have also helped many people to make medical negligence cases when they have suffered a surgical error. While most surgeries do come with risks, this does not mean that you should suffer because one of the surgeons has made a mistake. Major surgical errors are not common but they do happen. This could include cases whereby the wrong organ has been removed or a scalpel has been left inside of the patient. There are a number of different reasons why surgical negligence may have happened. This could have been because you were diagnosed with the wrong illness in the first place, it could be because of a mistake that has been made during the application of any anaesthetic, or it could be that the surgeon has simply made a mistake while carrying out surgery. No matter what applies to your clinical negligence claim, we could give you free advice and if we believe you have a claim we could help you to get compensation.
You could also make a medical negligence claim against Spire Healthcare if you have suffered a wrongful diagnosis or misdiagnosis. Wrongful diagnosis could create two types of scenarios. In some cases, your symptoms may be identified incorrectly and so you may undergo treatment that was not needed. In other cases, you may be receiving treatment for a condition that you do not have, and this means that the condition you do have could be potentially going untreated and could get worse. When it comes to misdiagnosis, this means that the condition has been missed and, therefore, the patient does not receive any treatment and this could cause a condition to get progressively worse.
You could also make a dental negligence claim if you have been the victim of dental negligence. There are many different ways that dental negligence could happen. You could experience this if the dentist has diagnosed the wrong condition or if they have removed the incorrect tooth, for example.
Yes, if you have lost a loved one or they are in a position whereby they are too ill to make a medical negligence claim, you could make a clinical negligence claim for them. You could also make a negligence claim on behalf of your child if he or she has been the victim of medical negligence.
We have also helped many people to launch cases for fatal medical negligence. This happens when someone passes away as a direct consequence of poor medical care. If you have lost a loved one due to medical negligence, you will undoubtedly be going through a terrible time at the moment and you may feel at a loss regarding where to start. Whatever your situation, you could have complete peace of mind that you can give us a confidential call and that we will take care of everything for you so that you do not need to worry about making a hospital negligence claim.
If you have been the victim of a medical negligence injury, you probably have a lot of questions running through your mind in relation to making a compensation claim. One of the main queries many people have is whether there is a time limit on making a personal injury claim.
Firstly, a lot of you may be thinking, well why would you wonder about a time limit for a medical negligence claim? Surely it would make the most sense to make a medical negligence claim as soon as possible? Whilst this may be the thought process of someone who is going to recover within a few months, for someone who has experienced lifelong injuries, they are likely to think a bit differently. They are likely going to want time to come to terms with their injury and the consequences of it before they even begin to think about making a clinical negligence claim.
However, there is, unfortunately, a personal injury claims time limit when it comes to making a clinical negligence claim, and this is typically three years. This starts from the date of the accident. Therefore, if you were involved in a surgical blunder on the 15th July 2018 you would have until July 15th 2021 to make a medical negligence claim. Nonetheless, court proceedings need to be made before the final date, and so this is something worth bearing in mind. You would probably not want to leave it to the wire for a negligence compensation claim.
There are, of course, some exceptions, and sometimes you could even make a historical case and so the medical negligence claims time limit differs. There have been successful cases whereby people have claimed for medical negligence that has happened 20 years ago. It is not always black and white. For child medical negligence cases they have up until the age of 21 to claim.

When making any sort of compensation claim, you will be able to claim for two types of compensation. The first type of compensation that you are going to be able to claim for is what is known as special damages. This relates to any expenses that you have experienced because of your accident. There are a number of different costs that you may have had to fund because of what has happened to you. For example, you may find that you have been unable to work while recovering from your injuries, and therefore, you would have grounds to make a claim for loss of income. You could also make a claim for the likes of travel expenses, therapist costs, childcare costs, and anything else that you have had to pay for because of what has happened to you.
The second type of medical negligence claim compensation that you will be able to claim for is the sort of compensation that you are probably already familiar with, and this is general damages. General damages is simply a way of describing the compensation that you are could receive for your injuries. This will be decided upon by taking into account the severity of your original injury as well as looking at how the injury is going to impact your life in terms of lifelong symptoms and treatment that you are going to need to undergo. Needless to say, the more severe that an injury is, the greater the payout you are likely to receive for a hospital negligence or medical negligence claim.

This should give you great peace of mind.
