When thinking about medical negligence, we automatically think of breach of hospital care; this is not necessarily the case. In any circumstance where a health professional looks after people’s health, therein lies the risk of medical negligence exposure. The threat of medical malpractice is not just confined to doctors, dentists and opticians, but to any person who is working in the health care field.

Malpractice includes but is not limited to:

  • a failure to diagnose
  • incorrect sterilisation techniques
  • incorrect medication or prescription
