In 2011 Mrs F was referred by her GP to hospital with a suspected melanoma of the arm. She was seen by a junior doctor who assured her it was benign but froze it off using cryotherapy.
The lesion soon returned. Mrs F was re referred to the hospital in 2016 and on this occasion she had a biopsy which confirmed the diagnosis of melanoma. The 5 year delay however in removing the melanoma resulted in a less favourable prognosis for the client. The hospital accepted responsibility at an early stage and her case settled for £60,000.00.
What the client says about Sara Westwood: "I want to take this opportunity to thank you for all your help and advice throughout my case. I will definitely recommend you to friends and family if ever the need arises. Thank you once again."
