The BBC has recently reported that;

“Two nurses arrested as part of an investigation into allegations of wilful neglect at the Princess of Wales Hospital in Bridgend have been charged. South Wales Police said the two, who were arrested last month, will appear in court later this month.

One has been charged with three counts of wilful neglect, and the other with four counts. The allegations involve the falsification of entries in patients’ notes. Three other nurses from the Bridgend hospital have previously been charged as part of the same investigation.

Police said the new charges relate to three patients, all of whom are among those already subject to previous charges in the inquiry.

Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board has suspended 15 nurses as part of the inquiry – all but one of them from the Princess of Wales hospital.”

Happily incidents such as this, which involve the police, do not happen very often in the NHS, which, given that the NHS is the largest employer in Europe with 1.3 million employees, is good to know.

At Ringrose Law though we do get regular enquiries about the care provided whilst patients are being treated in Hospital.

We always provide free initial advice and very often the matter goes no further. Obviously though some clients need ongoing expert legal advice and we happy to consider acting on a no win no fee basis if the circumstances allow.

Therefore if you wish to know whether you or a relative or friend have a potential legal claim against the NHS, on a fee confidential basis, don’t hesitate to contact us either by phone or through our website, or at one of our offices in Lincoln, Boston, Grantham, Sleaford, Spalding & Newark.
