£9,000 Dental negligence compensation awarded to Manchester man

A Manchester man has been awarded £9,000 in compensation following dental negligence at a Manchester hospital.

The man was referred to the hospital after suffering agonising pain, and was supposed to have 3 teeth removed in an operation. Afterwards he noticed that an extra tooth had been removed by mistake.

The man required remedial treatment including an implant crown that needs replacing every 15 years. The hospital admitted the mistake and the compensation was agreed in an out of court settlement.

NHS bosses said action had been taken to prevent this from happening again and a spokesman said: “We would like to extend our sincere apologies. The investigation into the incident has been concluded and the hospital has acted upon the recommendations.”
