Useful Information

The material will be directly related to my personal experience with groin hernia, hernia surgery and its aftermath. I will also include issues related to my work and my ill health retirement, various treatments that I have had and my ongoing rehabilitation.

I have split this page into three sub-pages:

  1. Useful Information for the layperson
  2. Information for healthcare professionals.
  3. Complaint procedures and Medico-legal issues
    • The hospital complaint system
    • The British legal system and the No Win No Fee Claims
    • The General Medical Council handling of my complaint against my surgeon and his surgical expert witness (a professor of surgery)
    • The Expert Witness Institute, and how they dealt with my complaint against the defendant’s surgical expert witness
    • The Legal Ombudsman
