Let’s define medical negligence and surgical negligence. When you are a patient of a doctor, nurse, dentist or any other type of medical practitioner, they and the medical organisation that they work for, owe you a duty of care. This means that they are legally obliged to provide you with the minimal possible standard of care. If you experience substandard care when a medical practitioner is treating you and you are avoidably injured, made unnecessarily ill, or your pre-existing medical condition is worsened because of this negligence action or inaction, this is known as medical negligence.
Medical negligence could potentially include a doctor making a medical mistake such as misdiagnosing a patient’s condition when they would have been expected to identify the signs, prescribing the wrong medication, a midwife injuring a baby that they are delivering by using the wrong tools, or a dentist extracting the wrong tooth or a nurse injecting a patient with a used needle (a needlestick injury). Apart from the latter in order to claim medical negligence the patient must have suffered harm. There are many different types of medical negligence that exist. Medical negligence is also known as clinical negligence or medical malpractice. If you are a Manchester resident who has been injured because of medical negligence, you could be entitled to make a medical negligence claim in Manchester for your injuries. Call Accident Claims UK today, to find a solicitor to represent your claim.
In this guide, we will be focusing on negligence in surgery and will be looking at a surgical negligence case. What is surgical negligence? Surgical negligence is a type of clinical negligence that occurs during surgery. It could be that a surgeon has made a mistake in reading the patients records and operates on the wrong body part, makes an error due to poor planning and a surgeon performs the wrong surgery, or in rare cases, a surgeon makes a mistake because of gross negligence, for example, they were under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time. Examples of negligence in surgery include wrong-site surgery where the surgeon operates on the wrong part of the body, a foreign body being left inside the patient, or a surgeon not properly closing up the incision causing infection.
According to a Government report published in 2017, in the years 2016-2017 clinical negligence claims cost the NHS £1.6 billion. According to figures from the National Audit Office (NAO), this is quadruple the cost it was in the years 2006-2007.

We will now look at a case study involving negligence in surgery. Mr S, 46 from Openshaw in Manchester had keyhole surgery at the Manchester Royal Infirmary Hospital. During his operation, the surgeon sliced through his bladder and prostate, in fact, when he came round from the anaesthetic he described the surgeon as having “tears in his eyes”, because of the error he had made.
As a result of the surgical negligence, Mr S was left with a very poor quality of life. He now has to use a catheter, which means he can’t sleep in a bed, has urinary infections and suffers from debilitating pain. He was also left with scar tissue, following surgery to remove the swabs that were left inside of him. Prior to this surgical negligence case, Mrs S enjoyed his job and had an active social life. Because of the injuries, he was forced to leave his job and was no longer able to carry out household tasks or leave his home to socialise. In the future, Mr S would need corrective surgery, which he was anxious about having given the disastrous effects of the surgical negligence he suffered before.
Subsequently, Mr S claimed for medical negligence against Manchester Royal Infirmary. The hospital admitted liability and made an unreserved apology to Mr S and his family. The compensation amount for Mr S was an undisclosed 6 figure sum.
