We can’t directly affect any internal action against those responsible for medical negligence.
Claiming for compensation aims to put you back in a similar position you were in before you suffered injury due to medical negligence, as well as raise awareness so that others don’t suffer the same hardships as you in the future.
A medical negligence claim runs separately to any other form of action, and it’s the responsibility of other institutions and professional bodies to decide whether any action is taken directly against a medical professional.
For example, the General Medical Council (GMC) monitors each registered medical professional to determine whether they are fit to practice medicine. If the GMC investigate a medical professional, and the results show that the negligent act happened again, or that a life was endangered, then they may impose sanctions preventing them from practising.
We can talk you through how to make a complaint or referral to the GMC if appropriate.
