Medical negligenceThis week Natalizia Capizzi of our Clinical Negligence team has been representing local Aylesbury resident Patricia Austin, 78, at the Royal Courts of Justice in London.

Mrs Austin is suing the South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust after a delayed diagnosis of a flesh-eating bug which led to the amputation of her right arm.

Mrs Austin suffered pain following a Pilates class at her local Church on 8th August 2012. When the pensioner called for an ambulance in excruciating pain the following day, she was told it was a torn tendon and gastroenteritis, a stomach bug, and paramedics refused to take her to hospital. She was finally taken to hospital on 10th August, where staff took over eight hours to identify the flesh-eating bacteria before deciding to amputate her right arm.

Mrs Austin is now suing the Trust, claiming that her limb could have been saved had she been taken to hospital sooner.

Commenting on the case, Natalizia Capizzi said: ‘Patricia Austin came to us with her case in 2014. This case has been multi-faceted and we were not prepared to concede. We believe this case is one worth fighting and are delighted that we have finally been able to prepare this case for Trial and put all the evidence before the Judge. Due to the complexity of the case, the Judge will require time to reflect before giving his Judgement, but we are eagerly awaiting the outcome.’

The case has been featured in the Daily Mail this week. You can read the full article here.
