Claims against the NHS can often be long and difficult. Fortunately, Healys is here to help you every step of the way. There are many different situations in which it can be necessary to make a claim against the NHS. Perhaps you have had a poor standard of surgery, you have been a victim of misdiagnosis, or indeed a late diagnosis for an illness that you now suffer from.
Regardless of the circumstances, claims against the NHS can often be complex and challenging from both a legal and a personal perspective. Fortunately, Healys is here to help. We have vast experience of dealing with all manner of claims against the NHS, which is why we are so well placed to help you with your medical negligence claim. Whether your claim relates to something which happened in a hospital, an NHS clinic, or even in surgery, it is likely that Healys can assist you.
We take great pride in our client care and attention, as well as our first class legal expertise in relation to medical negligence claims against the NHS. Healys fully understands that the prospect of making a claim against the NHS can be a scary and overwhelming one. We recognise that it can appear that the NHS is such a large organisation, that making a claim is impossible or too difficult. This is not the case.
Here at Healys, we specialise in representing claimants, meaning that we have vast experience in helping individuals pursue claims against the NHS, including hospitals and clinics.
With Healys by your side, you can be more than confident that your interests will be protected and represented every step of the way.
Our track record of success with claims against the NHS is also excellent. This is not only because of our legal knowledge and expertise, but also because of the time and care that we invest in preparing cases on behalf of our clients.
When you first contact the medical negligence team here at Healys, we ensure that we find out, in as much detail as possible, the facts and circumstances surrounding your case. This will enable us to best advise you as to the merits of your potential claim against the NHS.
Because our service is client focused and individually tailored, Healys will also take time to get to know you as an individual. A medical negligence claim, whilst involving a legal process, is about far more than the law alone. It is likely that you will have suffered injury, pain, emotional distress or illness, depending upon the nature and extent of the medical negligence in your particular case.
Here at Healys, we want to not only assist with the legal aspect of your case, but hope to find ways in which we can support you following your bad experience, whatever the circumstances may be.

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).
