What is medical negligence? 

Medical negligence happens when a healthcare provider gives improper care, leading to more injuries, illnesses, pain, suffering, and emotional distress for the patient. It can also make existing conditions worse. This negligence can show up in different ways, like misdiagnosis, wrong treatment, or surgical mistakes. If you or someone you care about received poor treatment at an NHS Trust or private facility in Wakefield and suffered unnecessary pain, you might qualify to seek compensation.
