Pryers represented Mr P after a delay in diagnosis and treatment of bone marrow cancer.

In 2006 Mr P was suffering from abdominal pain and loose stools. He was referred to a gastroenterologist at the Defendant Hospital Trust for investigations.

Blood tests were performed and showed raised IgG paraprotein levels – a sign that Mr P could have been suffering from early cancer. It was essential that the result was followed up and further investigations performed.

The Hospital appreciated this and wrote to Mr P’s GP advising that repeat testing was needed. However, neither the Hospital nor the GP followed this up.

Mr P was unaware that further tests were required and was reassured that all was well.

It was not until 6 years later when he started to suffer from bone pain that further tests were performed and the Hospital’s mistake was recognised. Mr P was diagnosed with myeloma requiring intensive treatment.

Pryers worked closely with an independent oncologist and orthopaedic surgeon to prove that the Hospital had been negligent and that they had caused a delay in diagnosis and treatment of the cancer.

Investigations showed that Mr P’s prognosis was unaffected by the negligence but he was entitled to compensation for the pain and suffering and financial losses he sustained over the period of delay in treatment.

The Hospital initially denied that they were at fault. However with many years experience in cancer claims, Pryers were undeterred and fought through the courts to achieve an admission of negligence and a fair settlement for Mr P.

He received £28,000 in compensation which would give him some financial security whilst he was about to embark on another course of treatment.
