Access to Justice Just Got Worse!

So on today’s menu the starter is ‘Cuts’. No not best cuts of meat, but cuts in the infrastructure of our society. The Government in their wisdom now want to cut legal aid for all medical negligence cases. It will have far-reaching effects on an area of litigation where legal aid is most needed.
So you are treated by a doctor or surgeon and he does it wrong. You have suffered loss, maybe lost your job through disability caused directly by negligence. Well, you could argue that’s just tough, but if you want to claim for your losses and fight a big corporation like the NHS Litigation Authority it will cost you money.

David Cameron Rides again!

Makes you want to laugh doesn’t it? There are the PM and his deputy in hospital, interviewing a patient. Cameras all around, a security team too. Heh Heh! In comes the Consultant who screams‘I won’t have it! Get out.Why do you think we all have to dress like this! I won’t have it! Get out!’ Maybe he’s not in the running for a knighthood now.
Well, I’ll tell you what it was all about really.
Hospital doctors have been forced to abandon formal dress in suits for a short-sleeved, no tie approach to supposedly reduce the chance of infection on out clothes.
