Negligent Care from NHS in IVF Treatment

13 September 2010

From 2005 until 2007 a woman underwent IVF treatment with the hope of conceiving.  However, it wasn’t until May 2007 that our client was diagnosed with endometriosis.  People who suffer from this condition have a far reduced chance of conceiving through IVF, and our client should have been made aware of this. Expert evidence confirmed that the endometriosis should have been diagnosed in 2005 before our client underwent further cycles of IVF which she paid for privately. Medical evidence was that after the endometriosis was treated, IVF would have been an option again. Our expert clinical negligence solicitors helped our client win £7,000 in compensation. Happily the client became pregnant naturally and gave birth in March 2009.
