Mrs T was in the early stages of pregnancy when she attended the Hospital with pain and bleeding.

A further test confirmed that she was pregnant but when an ultrasound scan was performed there was no sign of the foetus in her uterus, meaning that there was a chance that she was suffering from an ectopic pregnancy.

The Hospital performed Beta HCG tests and sent Mrs T home whilst the results were awaited. They reassured Mrs T that they would contact her straight away if the results indicated that she had an ectopic pregnancy.

The test results showed that she had a likely ectopic pregnancy. However, Mrs T never received a call so she continued with pregnancy thinking that all was well with her baby.

Sadly, the pregnancy had formed outside of her uterus in her right fallopian tube.

Just weeks later she was admitted to Hospital as an emergency and was shocked to be diagnosed with a ruptured ectopic pregnancy.

She required a laparotomy to remove the pregnancy and lost her right fallopian tube.

Pryers instructed an independent expert gynaecologist who advised that the Hospital had been negligent. There was a delay in diagnosis and treatment of the ectopic pregnancy.

Had it not been for the negligence, Mrs T could have been treated with a drug called Methotrexate, which would have avoided the need for surgery. She would not have lost her fallopian tube.

Pryers fought hard to secure Mrs T an out of court settlement, which fairly reflected the pain and suffering she had been put to.
