If you live in Andover, you’re lucky to have access to a number of NHS units, including the Andover War Memorial Hospital and the Andover Medical Centre. The Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust oversees Andover War Memorial Hospital in particular, which means that they are responsible for dealing with any cases of suspected medical negligence that occur there.
Andovarians appear mixed in their opinions of the War Memorial Hospital. As at June 2018, the 29 reviews left on the NHS choices website (the website run by the NHS themselves) average out at just 3/5 stars.
Here at Andover Law Firm Bonallack and Bishop, we recognise that at the heart of every medical negligence claim is a real person whose trust in the medical profession might have been completely undermined by the incompetence or negligence of a health care professional. We understand that the resulting trauma goes far deeper than the physical discomfort and pain caused by the medical error and that getting an acknowledgement of that mistake in the form of medical negligence compensation can be part of the healing process.
[NB medical negligence is often called clinical negligence – don’t worry, they both mean exactly the same thing].

THE HAMPSHIRE HOSPITALS TRUST AND MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE
According to a recent BBC report, Hampshire Hospitals Trust has developed what appears to be a poor record of medical errors in the last few years. In the five year period up to 2018, the trust had to pay out compensation and legal costs of a remarkable £39 million as a result of medical negligence. That placed it as the 68th worst trust nationwide, out of a total of 260 health trusts.
THE NEED FOR SPECIALIST LEGAL ADVICE
Claiming compensation after a medical accident is often complex. Not only is the law and procedure surrounding any medical claim complicated, but your solicitor is going to need a good understanding of the medical concepts involved – when reviewing your x-rays, reading expert medical reports and trying to decipher any hospital or GP notes. That’s why you need a genuine specialist.

We are the only law firm in Andover with members of both of the leading specialist panels for medical negligence – run by;
- the Law Society and
