  • Overview

    George Liley, specialist clinical negligence lawyer, successfully obtained an out of court settlement of £100,000 for the family of a patient who died of colorectal cancer, after his tumour was missed by both his GP and treating hospital.

    The deceased’s GP failed to carry out a digital rectal examination and failed to put the deceased on a “two week wait” suspected cancer referral pathway.

    During a flexible sigmoidoscopy, the treating consultant’s incorrectly identified a ‘haemorrhoidal mass’ instead of the tumour.

    A colonoscopy ultimately revealed that the deceased had colorectal cancer.

    Despite chemotherapy treatment, the deceased died from his cancer.

    George Liley investigated the case and obtained reports from a GP expert, a colorectal surgeon and an oncologist.

    The case against the GP was that the deceased would have ultimately been cured of his cancer had appropriate care been given. Had the hospital detected the cancer earlier, the deceased would have lived for longer. 

    The case was settled out of court for £100,000.
