Hudgell Solicitors staff ready to ‘Wear it Pink’ in support of breast cancer research

Wear it Pink Logo


By Lauren Dale, Clinical Negligence Solicitor at Hudgell Solicitors

According to the latest statistics, there are an estimated 2.5 million people in the UK today who have had a cancer diagnosis – an increase of almost half a million people over the past five years.

It is being predicted that by the end of 2016, more than a thousand people will be diagnosed with cancer every day in the UK.

These are certainly worrying figures, but figures which also put the need to support ongoing research and investment into cancer treatments sharply into focus.

Progress is certainly being made.

Concern for 170 patients of Birmingham prostate surgeon after allegedly diagnosing cancer wrongly

Manu Nair inquiry


By Simon Wilson, senior solicitor at Hudgell Solicitors

It seems quite inconceivable that a patient could wrongly be told they have a form of cancer by an experienced surgeon, and then undergo surgery to remove it, when in fact they didn’t have cancer at all.

Being told you have cancer is a life-changing moment for patients and their loved ones. In the moment patients are told, their life changes for ever.

It is perhaps for that reason that many doctors often find themselves facing criticism for not diagnosing cancer early enough.

“I want other children with cancer to know they are not alone. There are lots of us fighting it”

Hope rooms with her dog


A girl who was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 12 says she wants other young children who find themselves in a similar position to ‘know they are not alone’, and that they can find the support to help them adapt and live with the illness.

Hope Rooms clearly remembers being told the life-changing news that she had cancer, but admits that because of her young age at the time, the significance of her diagnosis was not something she was able to fully contemplate or understand.

Of course she knew it meant life would never be the same for her and her family, and that she faced the most difficult of times ahead if she was to overcome her illness, but initially, she simply didn’t want to face the reality.

Doctors aren’t always right…so patients should be confident questioning care and diagnosis

Childhood Cancer awareness Month


By Lauren Dale, Clinical Negligence Solicitor at Hudgell Solicitors 

When we visit doctors and hospitals with our loved ones, we do so seeking reassurance and clarity. We usually want to know why they have been taken ill, what it means for their health, and what can be done to put them on the mend as soon as possible.

We essentially visit hoping for good news, and thankfully, in most cases, doctors and nurses have the answers we crave.
