Woman injured during gynaecological procedure receives compensation

A young woman has settled her medical negligence claim against Kings College Hospital

Emergency ambulance

24 February 2016

A young woman, M, has received compensation after suffering a gynaecological injury after being treated at Kings College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
 
Ms M was represented by specialist medical negligence solicitor Anna Brothers.
 
Ms M had her first smear test at the age of 28.  The results of the test showed that she had cervical cancer. 

She was immediately referred immediately for a loop diathermy procedure, which she underwent in March 2011 under general anaesthetic.
 
The procedure appeared to have gone well.  However Ms M was forced to return to the A&E department by ambulance on the day she was discharged as she was suffering from lower abdominal and rectal pain and bleeding. 
 
She had to undergo a further medical procedure under general anaesthetic to remove a large haematoma, suffering pain, discomfort and psychological distress.
 
The Trust admitted liability for Ms M’s injuries and paid her a sum of compensation.
