One of the UK’s leading medical negligence and serious injury law firms, Fletchers Solicitors, has unveiled a new social media campaign which debates whether it is ethical to sue the NHS and private health services.

The campaign is asking the general public for their thoughts on taking legal action against the health service through a poll conducted on the solicitors’ Facebook page. Results from the survey will then be published via the law firm’s social media channels.

Fletchers Solicitors, which handles one in 25 of the UK’s medical negligence cases, seeks to shine a spotlight on poor care within the NHS and private health services, in order to force change and improve standards for patients.

Ed Fletcher, CEO at Fletchers Solicitors, explained: “The NHS is a fantastic service. Having severed my spine in a motorbike accident over ten years ago, I’ve benefitted so much from the services healthcare professionals provide. That’s why it breaks my heart to see first-hand the kind of lapses and failings in care that we’ve seen highlighted in the news recently.

“We believe that suing for medical negligence is necessary to highlight the significant problems in the health service and make sure that malpractice doesn’t happen again. However, it is always interesting to find out other people’s views and the campaign will help to achieve this. My hope though is that with proper focus and attention to detail, we can do our bit to help standards improve and make the NHS great again.”
The debate forms parts of a wider national campaign tailored specifically to highlight the firm’s strength in supporting people suffering medical negligence and severe personal injury.
