Clinical Negligence - about this specialist department in Digby Brown
Fortunately, most medical and dental treatment is carried out well. However, there are occasions when treatment falls below the appropriate standard and can result in injury or even death. In that event you may have a claim for medical or dental negligence (referred to as clinical negligence) in Scotland. Clinical negligence claims may involve general practitioners, hospital doctors and staff, surgeons, dentists and other specialists providing healthcare either through the NHS or privately.
Making a claim against a health professional is a big step. It is important to be fully informed before embarking on such a claim.
