Tom Barnes acted for a 38 year old lady who received £200,000.00 damages for latent radiation damage to her bladder and bowels following treatment for cervical cancer. This was an extremely interesting case as it explored the law in respect of informed consent. MB’s injuries did not arise as a result of the negligent administration of chemo-radiotherapy, but this was the only treatment option put to MB. However, it was MB’s case that there was another option i.e. radical hysterectomy which she would have chosen had she been so advised by the treating Clinicians. The case settled shortly before trial, but had the matter proceeded to trial, then it would almost inevitably have ended up in the Court of Appeal as the parties did not agree the extent to which a Clinician has a duty of care to their patient to advise them of all reasonable treatment options.
