    Bournemouth breast cancer recall claim solicitors

    Published on: 10/05/2013

    You will have read in the national and local press recently that the Royal Bournemouth Hospital has asked 272 patients to return for a follow up breast cancer screening examination following concerns expressed by Consultants at the hospital into the standard of care given by junior doctor.

    The male doctor  concerned [whose identity is being withheld] was employed at the Bournemouth hospital between January 2011 and July 2012 – though it has been confirmed that he no longer works at the hospital . It appears that the patients concerned were told following his examination that they did not need further follow up when one should have been arranged.

    I have acted for a number of women who have had their breast cancer diagnosed late in my 20 years of practice as a solicitor specialising in medical negligence. I have obtained medical evidence from a number of specialists qualified to comment on the standard of care given to patients by their treating doctor and the difference it has made to a patient’s life expectancy. As a very broad and general rule a delay of up to 6 months in diagnosis of early breast cancer makes no difference to a patient’s outcome but than a delay of longer than 6 months can.

    Breast cancer delayed diagnosis – the problem

    My concern is that if some patients were discharged from follow up in January 2011 and their cancer was not diagnosed because they did not have a further follow up, some of them may be well outside of that 6 months period and their health and life expectancy very adversely affected.

    My experience of dealing with clients who have had a late diagnosis of their cancer is that they need confident yet sympathetic handling. If a client presents with a late diagnosis of breast cancer , or indeed any other form of cancer] she may only have months left to live and will need firm and practical advice to help them and their family deal with what is facing them. I am experienced in providing this advice.

    I am a member of both the AvMA [ national patient justice charity Action For Victims Of Medical Accidents] Specialist Medical Negligence Solicitor panel and the Law Society’s Clinical Negligence Panel.

    Breast Cancer Screening Recall  – Home and hospital visits available

    I can arrange home and hospital visits locally in the Bournemouth area [or indeed anywhere in Wiltshire, Hampshire and Dorset ] for patients who are very unwell.

    Whilst the hospital consultants have acted very responsibility in bringing this to the attention of those concerned and involving the General Medical Council and I aware that there are patients who may require legal advice, some of them very quickly.
