Treatment by a gynaecologist should be done with sensitivity and care. Whether you’re visiting a gynaecologist for a routine check-up or you need treatment for a specific condition, you have the right to expect the highest standards of care. When medical professionals fail to meet these standards, the consequences can be severe - gynaecological negligence can result in fertility problems, chronic pain and in some cases, a life-changing illness or injury.
If you’ve suffered harm because of a mistake in your treatment or your illness wasn’t treated in time by a gynaecologist or urologist, you may be entitled to claim compensation. This can help to make your recovery more comfortable, pay for any treatment you need and act as a way to answer any questions you may have or pursue justice for what happened to you.
