Compensation claim lodged by Workington woman

A woman from Cumbria has instigated a claim for compensation following negligent care.

Janet Peacock who is from Workington was receiving treatment for an eye disease caused by diabetes at a hospital in Whitehaven when she underwent laser surgery in 2003 and 2004.

Ms. Peacock claiMs. that following the later operation, she was not seen again until June 2005; in the meantime she suffered from a detached retina which has resulted in total loss of vision in the right eye due to the length of time it had remained undetected.

Ms. Peacock has launched a claim for damages of approximately £50k against the trust which operates the hospital, claiming that her treatment was not monitored properly which in turn has disadvantaged her job prospects.

Her legal representative commented that Ms. Peacock should have been looked at much sooner after the 2004 surgery and had that consultation taken place; it would have been possible to save her eyesight.
