Thompsons NI Solicitors is currently acting on behalf of a number of former patients of Dr Michael Watt following concerns raised around diagnoses and treatment in the Royal Victoria hospital in Belfast as well as in private clinics across the capital.
If you’ve been treated by Dr Michael Watt and feel you may have a case, or have been contacted as part of the patient recall, call us on 02890 890450 or complete our claims form and one of our Belfast-based team will be in touch at a time convenient to you to discuss your case.
In May 2018, Belfast Health and Social Care Trust announced that it would be recalling a large number of patients following concerns raised about Dr Michael Watt, neurologist, in a report by the Royal College of Physicians.
BBC’s Spotlight programme claimed that Dr Michael Watt performed a large number of epidural blood patches; a report by the Department of Health indicated that almost none of the patients on which Dr Watt performed these procedures actually had the condition for which he was treating them.
However, this is just one aspect of the potential medical negligence by Dr Michael Watt, with concerns being raised about various other areas of diagnosis and treatment as well.
At Thompsons NI Solicitors we have specialist medical negligence solicitors with considerable experience of assisting and representing patients who have suffered as a result of delayed diagnosis, misdiagnosis and negligent procedures – including those affected by Dr Michael Watt.
