Wondering if anyone on here has ever taken legal action against a NHS Authority/Board and if so if they could provide advice on the process?
Without going into too much detail I am of the genuine belief that my NHS Authority was negligent in respect of the level of care provided to a now-deceased family member.
I have written evidence from various other NHS Authorities and Clinical organisations bodies as to best practice guidelines and standards of care offered to patients in respect of a particular issue which I believe contributed to the aforementioned death. In my family member's case, our NHS Authority did not follow the guidelines or offer the levels of care as, it seems, is offered in the rest of the country.
I can't afford a solicitor and I am not entitled to Legal Aid so, to be honest, I don't really know what to do.
Without being arsey, i'm not interested in whether or not legal action is a good idea and I don't want to divulge any more personal details. I just want to know from anyone who may have gone through the process before and what they had to do i.e. did they need professional legal representation? and what advice would they give, having gone through a legal action themselves?
Hope someone can offer advice.
