Incorrect prescriptions leads to claim
“Mrs L” of Manchester was given a prescription by her Doctor.
When she went to her local pharmacy, they dispensed the wrong medication – that is, she was not given what her Doctor had written on her prescription.
After four weeks had passed, she began to suffer from the serious side effects of the drugs she had been given. She went to her local hospital in some distress, where a nurse spotted that she had been supplied with the wrong medicine.
As soon as she stopped taking the drugs, she began to feel better.
We pursued a claim against the pharmacy for her, using a copy of her prescription and the remainder of the drugs she had been prescribed as evidence.
The pharmacy denied liability and we spent several months fighting the case on our client’s behalf. Eventually, we obtained over £2,000 in compensation for her.
Fortunately, the drugs she had taken did not cause her any permanent damage.
