It is an unfortunate truth that despite thorough training and rigorous procedures, medical negligence can sometimes lead to patient fatalities within the NHS and private health sectors.
“While the number deaths resulting from a medical intervention is small compared to the number of successful treatments, there are around 3,000 fatalities each year, which is equivalent to eight tragic instances a day; every one of which should not have happened.”

When does this occur?
