    Understanding Laura’s Cancer Claim

    Laura saw her GP regularly and, having noticed signs of a bladder infection, asked about it. Her GP suggested she return, in two weeks, if the symptoms had not cleared up. They got worse and her GP referred her to a specialist, at a hospital. The GP said it could be the onset of bladder cancer.

    Three months later, there had not been any contact from the hospital. After speaking with her GP, they discovered the hospital had forgotten to fulfill the referral or to carry out the necessary procedures.

    A second referral was made but, once again, a full six months later, there had still not been any contact or appointment for Laura.

    Not wanting to pester the hospital a second time Laura attended a clinic, that arranged the appointment for her.

    Twelve months on she finally received a diagnosis of bladder cancer. Unfortunately, by this point it had become aggressive and spread to other areas of her body. Laura underwent major surgery and procedures to try to stop the cancer spreading, but, by this time, the cancer was too far advanced and had become inoperable.
