What is medical negligence? 

Medical negligence occurs when a healthcare provider fails to provide appropriate care, resulting in additional injuries, illnesses, pain, suffering, and emotional distress for the patient. It can also exacerbate existing conditions. This negligence can manifest in various forms, such as misdiagnosis, incorrect treatment, or surgical errors. If you or a loved one received substandard treatment at an NHS Trust or private facility in Barnsley, resulting in unnecessary pain, you may be eligible to seek compensation.
