Cancer Misdiagnosis Claims Isle of Wight

Detecting cancer at an early stage accompanied by a prompt referral for treatment is often crucial to a successful outcome for the patient.

Cancers do vary in their nature. There are also many different types of treatment. However, any delay in diagnosis and/or the treatment itself can be alarming for the patient and their family.

Types of cases

The Glanvilles Damant team of experienced specialist solicitors will advise you on bringing a claim for clinical negligence. We regularly deal with the following types of cases relating to delays in cancer diagnosis:

  • GPs failing to revisit or re-assess their original diagnosis when symptoms continue
  • Failures to refer for investigations
