Medical practitioner - Negligence - Claimant suffering subarachnoid brain haemorrhage - Claimant presenting non-typical symptoms - Doctors failing correctly to diagnose claimant - Whether doctors negligent.
Dismissing the claimant's claim that the Ministry of Defence had been negligent in that its doctors had failed to diagnose him as having suffered a subarachnoid brain haemorrhage, the court ruled that the claimant's symptoms were so far removed from indicating typical subarachnoid brain haemorrhage that the doctors at the Royal Navy Hospital were justified in not including SAH on their diagnosis list.
