Sending everyone a hug.
My partner suddenly passed last feb was 36. We have been waiting on police report and coronors reports. Police has now stated not enough evidence for them to criminally charge anyone. But have advised we may want to take it further ourselves,due to failings they found.
Has anyone ever gone on to sue NHS. Were did you go as 1st point of call. We know the hospital for a fact have failed in duty of care and neglect xxx
They are due to send all paperwork out this week from the police. Then coronor will conclude there report in sept or oct xxxx
Take it a solicitor who specialises in that area first 30 mins are free and see what they say x
My first port of call was PALS
Second solicitor should be a no win no fee but research which one
Also the ombudsman
But be beware i am now 32months into a claim although complicated you will have to prove causation
We have been told that there was significant failings with his care. We are awaiting full report from mental health expert too.
Just going through a complaint to scunthorpe hospital over my gorgeous fantastic wife sues treatment or lack of .trying to not let it get to me but really struggling to deal with it some days
Its so hard isnt it. Sending you love and support.
There is such lack of help for our loved ones, i feel for the NHS but when they neglect people and it results in the death of our loved ones, then things need to change xxx
@Claire84, I’m going thru a complaint about my Dad’s care. Just putting it together takes real strength as I’m constantly reliving it. It’s the last thing I can do for him. I’m also filling in the form to access his hospital records. As @nigbo2000 says Pals is your first port of call. Also google the hospital’s complaints procedure. Best of luck
Definitely contact pals .so far scunthorpe hospital pals has been extremely helpful and are appalled by things that my daughter and myself have found out
Just so people know if you take it beyond pals say to the ombudsman there investigation if they decide can take upwards of 32 months
Regarding records i got 2900 pieces of paper thru gp hospital etc but they also have a knack of not sending all
Thank you. Things need to change its shocking the way patients are treated. Sending you love and support xxx
