Rebecca Callard was successful in obtaining £10,000 in compensation for our client whose GP failed to refer her to a specialist in respect of a mole on her right thigh. Our client was worried about a mole on her thigh and had noticed that its appearance and colour had changed. She was examined by her GP and was told that the mole was not suspicious and no further investigations were required. Our client was still concerned about the appearance of the mole and returned to her GP 10 months later. The mole was excised and after testing was told that she had a malignant melanoma which had increased in size and depth as a result of the delay in being referred by her GP.  Our client required further surgery to remove tissue from her thigh and was left with a large scar on her leg.
