A woman who was diagnosed with cervical cancer after having two separate negative smear tests has stated that she is not taking legal action for the money.
Dr. Helen McGlone, who is suing the Greater Glasgow Health Board for £5 million in medical negligence damages (this figure is expected to rise to £30 million), according to The Scotsman today, said
“What I wanted was the people who misread the tests to know what they had done and be held responsible, and they have not, to this day.”
“Three of them out of 128 in this country still operate and they cannot recognise cells. I wanted people who misread these tests to get out of their jobs before they kill more women.”
The Greater Glasgow Health Board admit negligence, however, they claim that Dr. McGlone’s damages figure is excessive.
Dr. McGlone’s legal team claim that because of the negligence, in this case, their client had to forego a lucrative banking career because of the treatment which she had to undertake.
The hearing continues.
