Suffering from cancer, or having a relative suffering from the disease, is hard for anyone. This, unfortunately, can worsen considerably if it is coupled with a cancer misdiagnosis. To be seen for an urgent cancer referral in the UK, the standard waiting time at present is 2 weeks, with diagnosis times varying, but in some cases the cancer is not identified for an extended time and symptoms are mistaken for other medical issues.
Anytime a patient receives a cancer misdiagnosis, it will lead to later access to treatment, which significantly reduces the chances of successfully battling the disease. Patients whose cancer is detected accurately on time have a far better chance of remission than those with late cancer diagnosis. If you have suffered this situation, you should pursue a cancer misdiagnosis compensation claim with a trusted cancer misdiagnosis solicitor.
Anyone who has experienced this ordeal of cancer misdiagnosis from any medical professional can enlist Hampson Hughes Solicitors, with our reliable team of medical negligence solicitors practising in the area of St Helens. Our strong track record is something you can rely on; we offer access to legal recognition and compensation for individuals in St Helens and across the UK through our cancer misdiagnosis solicitors.
No compensation, be it from the NHS or any private healthcare facility, could ever make up for the medical consequences related to cancer misdiagnosis. Despite that, any further pain and suffering caused that can be attributed to a cancer misdiagnosis should be a cause for a compensation claim pursuit. Whenever cancer goes untreated following a misdiagnosis, more pain is experienced, as well as in many cases the loss of precious time with loved ones. This should lead you to contact our cancer misdiagnosis solicitors for St Helens.

Since cancer has a range of impacts both emotional and physical, impacts which encroach on a patient’s entire life from work to family life, sufficient compensation can be of immense help. Any late cancer diagnosis can be regarded as a failure of the medical professional/s who made the cancer misdiagnosis. This is reason enough to pursue recompense, with Hampson Hughes’ cancer misdiagnosis lawyers providing the right legal expertise to enable our clients in St Helens to hold medical professionals responsible for a cancer misdiagnosis accountable.
A report that appeared in The Guardian in April 2017 stated that after surveying over 4,000 patients diagnosed with a form of cancer in accident and emergency departments, it was found that 41% of those who had sought previous medical help from their GP had visited 3 or more times. The study, by the British Journal of General Practice, also showed those diagnosed with cancer at an emergency stage have a considerably worse prognosis than those diagnosed at an earlier stage.
