Investigating claims into delayed eye treatment
We are helping patients who are seeking Compensation due to worsening symptoms following delays and poor patient care from Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital & Royal Hampshire County Hospital.
When getting treatment you have the right to expect that you will be seen and that there will be a reasonable time to get treatment, especially when a delay can have life altering results.
Have you or a loved one experienced the devastating consequences of delayed eye treatment at Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital or Royal Hampshire County Hospital, both part of the Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust? You could join our group legal action helping patients whose eyesight has deteriorated and, in some cases, led to irreversible problems. If your eyesight has deteriorated due to these delays, you may be eligible to claim compensation for the subpar treatment you received.
Understanding the Problem
The Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust operates two prominent medical facilities, Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital and Royal Hampshire County Hospital. While these hospitals provide essential healthcare services, they have faced significant challenges in their ophthalmology departments, leading to unnecessary delays in eye treatments. These challenges with capacity and limitations have even been acknowledged in a recent meeting note with the management of the Trust.
Patients who were not seen promptly have reported worsening eye conditions. In some unfortunate cases, individuals have undergone surgeries when less invasive treatments, such as eye drops, could have resolved their issues if administered in a timely manner.
