Cardiology deals with the diagnosis and treatment of heart disease and accounts for approximately 20% of all acute medicine. Therefore, it is not surprising that we receive a high number of enquiries from patients and their families concerning the treatment received.
Because Cardiology is such a vast and complex practise area, negligence can impact a patient in a number of ways. The negligence could cause further damage resulting in the need for additional surgery, cause brain damage, or, in some cases, it can even be fatal.
WE BROUGHT A CLAIM AGAINST JOHN'S GP AND PROVED THAT THEY HAD BEEN NEGLIGENT, SECURING DAMAGES OF MORE THAN £500,000 FOR HIM.
John had a serious cardiac condition. His GP failed to diagnose it until John had a major heart attack and needed triple bypass surgery.
As a result he was left breathless, weak and unable to walk far. His life expectancy has been reduced. He has had to give up work and has become depressed.
How did a claim help John?
We brought a claim against his GP, proved that the GP had been negligent and secured damages of more than £500,000 for him. This helps replace his lost income. It also includes money to pay for treatment, support at home and equipment to make his daily tasks easier. All this means that he can have a much better quality of life.

Women's cardiac care
As covered in Laurence Vick’s two-part blog, medical science has neglected the physiological differences between men and women, leading to an imbalance in the quality of cardiac care for women.
