Leicester GP Delay Referring Patient To Ear Nose And Throat Specialist

Leicester GP Delay Referring Patient To Ear Nose And Throat Specialist

Through the hard work of Anna Manning, specialist solicitor at Irwin Mitchell’s Sheffield office a successful clinical negligence claim was secured against Dr. B.V Modi, from the Cannon Street Surgery in Leicester.

Our client has suffered with nose problems since she was a baby, including a blocked nose, migraines and breathing problems. Despite her symptoms she was never referred to an Ear, Nose and Throat Specialist and was always prescribed nose sprays and steroids which did not alleviate her symptoms.

On changing address in November 2010, Leanne attended a new GP who referred her immediately to an Ear, Nose and Throat Specialist. Leanne was informed she has twisted nasal canals and would have been born with this problem. She underwent surgery which completely alleviated the problem and has had no residual problems following the surgery.

Liability was not admitted, but the GP’s insurers settled the case out of Court for £4,500. The client was pleased with the outcome, saying “I am absolutely chuffed with the outcome. It couldn't have come at a better time”.

If you've experienced negligent treatment from your GP you might be entitled to compensation. Visit our GP Negligence Claims page for more information.
