Misinterpretation of test results can have massive consequences for you, your healthcare and health prognosis as a whole. It may be that the misinterpretation of test results has resulted in you being given incorrect or inappropriate treatment, that the error has caused you to become more ill, or worse, caused you further, preventable health problems.
All of these scenarios, and many others, can be a direct consequence of a misinterpretation of test results, and therefore, such mistakes by medical professionals are very serious indeed.

Naturally, such issues do not only affect the individual concerned, but their family and loved ones too. Healys recognises this, and is committed to helping in every way we can.
With in excess of 50 years experience in the medical negligence area of law, we are experts in dealing with cases of this nature, and not only do we offer first class legal expertise, but also client care and service that is second to none.

In 2018, official figures showed the waiting list for an NHS operation was over 4.3 million patients long. To put this into context, if we were to print this off, assuming an average of 50 patients per page, and laid end to end, the list would be 23 kilometres long (or 14 miles) – enough to stretch from our office in Brighton to Worthing (via the A27).
