What is medical negligence? 

Medical negligence occurs when a healthcare professional provides improper care, causing more injuries, illnesses, pain, suffering, and emotional distress for the patient. It can also worsen existing conditions. This negligence can take various forms, such as misdiagnosis, incorrect treatment, or surgical errors. If you or someone you care about received substandard treatment at an NHS Trust or private facility in York and endured unnecessary pain, you might be eligible to seek compensation.
