Davies and Partner’s Medical Negligence Solicitor James Wickett highlights another disappointing report has emerged today that estimates half a million people in Wales are waiting for NHS treatment and it is unlikely that the backlog will be cleared within the next 5 years.

Currently, there is also an increase in people waiting for diagnostic testing.
Both a delay in diagnosis and a delay in treatment can have a massive impact on a patient’s treatment or expected recovery.
If you or a loved one has experienced a delay in essential medical treatment or feel that a medical condition should have been identified sooner, please speak to one of our medical negligence team, for some initial advice.
