The financial pressure on services, including increasing patient numbers, prisons, detention centres, hospitals and care homes, has led to a failing to provide an adequate level of healthcare and treatment. It’s often the most vulnerable in our society, particularly the elderly and disabled, who suffer.
We work with claims arising from poor quality healthcare in prison or immigration detention. For example delays in access to medical treatment following an illness or injury, where this has resulted in a more serious, longer lasting injury or even death.
Cases of this type involves inadequate provision of either physical or mental healthcare. We also act for individuals whose rights have been violated through poor policy or practice, which has resulted in them suffering injury or death in a residential or care home setting, or in psychiatric detention. We will assist you with an inquest before a coroner where a family member’s death requires further investigation.
