Scottish Law Questions? Ask a Scots Lawyer
Thank you for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland. If it is established that the urgent removal of the dressing caused the procedure to be less effective than it otherwise would have been then you would have cause for complaint and could ask them to fix it as you could hold them negligent for not taking account of your allergy. However, you can't make assumptions. There has to be either an admission on their part or alternatively you would have to prove on a balance of probabilities that the wrong dressing caused the end result. For that you might have to get an expert report elsewhere. The first stage is to gauge the position at your follow up appointment and then make a decision from there. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I credited for my time.
