Hi I have recentley found out I have Hepatitis C, it seems I was tested positive in 2004, but my GP neglected to inform me for the last 10 years , I was never told , also I have no history of drug abuse of any kind ,never had any tattoo's or peircings, I have had several surgeries pre the 1990's so I think there is a chance I may have been infected whilst in hospital before they started screening for Hep c, in your opinion do you think I have a case against my GP surgery and maybe the NHS

Thank you

LondonlawyerJ :

I think you may well have a claim. You should see a specialist solicitor ASAP. Follow this link to the Association of Victims of Medical accidents list of solicitors No win no fee agreements are frequest in this area and I think legal aid can still be available in some circumstances. You need to do this quickly as there are timie limits for bringing cases.


Thank you for your prompt reply and advice
