The parents of children who may not have received correct epilepsy care and treatment at a hospital in Surrey are being urged to seek immediate legal advice.

A specialist epilepsy doctor at the Royal Surrey County Hospital has been suspended as part of an ongoing inquiry into the treatment of more than 500 patients over the past nine years.

Children involved in the doctor’s treatment may not have received the correct standard of care and may have suffered harm as a consequence. In such cases there may be a case for making a claim.

Whilst no personal blame has currently been directed at the doctor involved, anyone who has received a letter from the Royal Surrey County Hospital Trust should contact a specialist clinical negligence lawyer to discuss their situation in detail. Geldards offers an initial consultation free of charge and are here to help.

Whilst the team can discuss the legal aspects of the issue, proper medical advice should be sought before any changes are made to a child’s epileptic medication. Anyone with any concerns on this should contact their GP or the hospital trust’s helpline.
