Early diagnosis of cervical cancer increases the chances of recovery. To claim negligence, one would need to prove that the delay in diagnosing the cervical cancer adversely affected your health outcome.
Compensation claims may be successful if it can be proven that your gynaecologist or GP’s diagnosis (or misdiagnosis) fell below the standard that is expected of a practitioner with a similar level of knowledge and skill in the field, and resulted in damage to you or a loved one.
