Nigel Poole QC, Head of Chambers at Kings Chambers has launched a new book aimed at demystifying the world of clinical negligence.
The book, entitled “Clinical Negligence Made Clear: A Guide for Patients and Professionals”, provides an accessible guide for patients, doctors, nurses, therapists, expert witnesses, and healthcare managers on the legal proceedings involved in a clinical negligence dispute.
Clinical negligence claims cost the NHS over £2 billion every year and the book focuses on common areas of clinical negligence claims such as wrongful birth, delays in cancer treatment and cosmetic surgery.
Speaking about the book, Nigel commented: “Litigation is adversarial by nature, but no good purpose is served in encouraging hostility between healthcare professionals and their patients. Where hostility does exist it often stems from misunderstanding and poor communication. My hope with the book is to shed some light on the relevant laws and procedures involved in a clinical negligence case, so that anyone involved in a claim will have a better understanding”.
