Is it ethical to sue the NHS?

14th June 2013

We have a health service we should all be proud of. Or do we? Lately, it seems every day a new scandal emerges, and more failings are discovered. So what should we do about that?

We say that by suing for medical negligence, we’re helping make sure that malpractice doesn’t happen again. But then some feel we’re raiding the coffers of much-needed funds.

What do you think? Is it morally right to sue our health service? Visit our Facebook page and leave your views. Positive or negative. You decide.

A few people have already told us what they think. Take a look.

Who are we?

If you have just landed on this page from social media you might wonder who we are. Fletchers Solicitors is a firm which handles one in 25 of the UK’s medical negligence cases.

We are seeking to shine a spotlight on poor care within the NHS and private health services, in order to force change and improve standards for patients.
