Although dealing with pregnant woman and childbirth is a routine part of the healthcare provided by the NHS, both areas can be precarious. If mistakes are made by the treating Doctors, Nurses or Midwives, the consequences for mother and baby can be dire. Grave and serious injury can result from maltreatment. In the most tragic cases, the outcome of poor or negligent treatment can be serious brain injury or loss of life.
This is an extremely sensitive and emotive area. Investigations into potential claims need to be handled with particular sympathy and understanding. We have the experts equipped to do that.
