Home > Patients’ Rights
Patients’ rights are at the forefront of what we, and our medical lawyers, do.
As a patient you have a right to expect a certain standard of treatment and care. Deviation from that standard causing injury may result in a medical negligence claim.
In addition, the Human Rights Act may be used to protect a patient from decisions that may contravene their rights.
Our lawyers deal with every aspect of medical law, including:
- Advance Refusals of Medical Treatment
- Refusals to fund medication / treatment
- NHS Complaints Procedure
- Withdrawing life sustaining treatment
- Capacity to consent to medical treatment
- The Human Rights Act
Without doubt, claims involving Patients’ Rights elements, such as a refusal by a PCT to fund a new cancer drug, will usually attract some form of media attention.
This attention needs careful handling to enable you to concentrate on your case. Our lawyers will help you deal with any unwanted media attention. They can also assist you to get your voice heard should you wish to talk to the the press.
