Hampshire Hospitals NHS Ophthalmology Claims

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.

What’s the process?

When you contact the team we will provide a Free Case Assessment to understand what has happened to you, listen what you would like to achieve and ensure that you have a valid case to bring. Once we have identified that you have a legitimate claim we will begin an investigation. In a group action this can be slightly different to a normal case as there will be parts which we can achieve as part of a wider group.

Within this stage we will need to collect evidence, work out who is responsible and assess your injuries. When dealing with a group there may be efficiencies and hopefully you will be able to benefit from this. We will apply to the Court to let them know that we are dealing with the case. If needed we will get a Group Litigation Order.

We will then negotiate with the defendants in order for us to try and reach a favourable settlement. Once we have a decision or an agreement of settlement we will arrange for the compensation to be paid to you.
