How To Make a Claim for Medical Negligence - NHS Scotland 

Claiming against NHS Scotland for medical negligence (also referred to as clinical negligence claims) can vary from incorrect prescriptions, a delay in diagnosis which resulted in an injury, misdiagnosis of an illness or disease, surgical errors during an operation, or neglect and injuries during childbirth, for either mother or baby.


Doctors, nurses and other staff in NHS Scotland must adhere to high standards of care at all times, however negligence does occur. As a result, the patient on the receiving end of the treatment suffers. If you have suffered due to a mistake by a doctor, surgeon or other member of staff employed by the NHS, you will be entitled to receive compensation through making a claim for medical negligence .
