Our client attended upon his GPs many times from 1999 onwards with recurrent problems in his right ear. He was repeatedly diagnosed as having an ear infection and prescribed anti-biotics.

Our client was finally referred to an ENT specialist at a hospital in July 2006 and he had his first appointment with the ENT Consultant on the 9th November 2006. The Consultant correctly diagnosed that our client was suffering from a right ear tumour. Our client subsequently underwent surgery to remove the tumour but has been left with permanent hearing and balance problems.
It was admitted by the defendants that our client should have been referred by February 2005 which would have led to earlier diagnosis and earlier surgery.
Our client has recovered the sum of £10,000 by way of compensation.
