All of my smear tests were misreported from 2009 onwards.

I have never missed an appointment when I was called for a routine smear test, and as far I was aware, they had all been reported as normal.

However, to my absolutely shock and devastation, following a diagnosis of stage 1A1 cervical cancer in 2018, I was told that all of the smears tests that I had had since 2009 had been misreported and showed evidence of early cervical cancer which should have been treated.

As a result of the progression of my cervical cancer, it has led to life changing injuries. I had to have a hysterectomy, which has left me infertile and unable to have any more children. It has also caused physical problems with abdominal pain and constipation. I have also suffered psychologically and it has affected many personal aspects of my life.

After finding out that my smears had been misreported, I knew that I needed legal advice from a specialist clinical negligence solicitor. So I contacted CL Medilaw who have lawyers that are experts in dealing with cervical cancer claims.

They quickly obtained an admission of liability from the hospital, which was a huge relief and meant that we could work together towards settling my claim.

Throughout the claim, my concerns have been listened to and I have been guided and supported through the process. My solicitor was easy to get along with, understood my claim and was always available for a face-to-face meeting or answer any concerns that I had on the telephone or email. She has made the whole process as easy and as worry free as possible.
