Damages for man after hospital failed to tell him he had cancer

Posted on 11th December 2017

A man has won damages from an NHS trust over a London hospital’s failure to tell him he had cancer.

Spaniard Raul Guiu Gallardo, 46, who came to the UK in 2000 to work in the computer software industry, was unaware that he had the condition for nearly a decade.

In January 2001, he was admitted to Charing Cross Hospital where he underwent surgery for what he believed was a bleeding stomach ulcer, but surgeons had removed a large gastrointestinal stromal tumour.

Agata Usewicz, Head of Medical Negligence department, represented Mr Gallardo.
