It is difficult to bring negligence claims against the hospitals for the reasons stated, especially when the government withheld relevant information from them (superbugs in pigs and pig farmers).
But the fact that MRSA and C.Diff may have been hidden up in British pigs is entirely different. Well worth grouping together and launching a class action.
If they were hidden up or if (as seems the only logical alternative)the pigs were never tested, then there is a clear case and whistle-blowers will emerge.
The lawyers won't miss it.
The figures for the increase in C.Diff in Britain are simply horrifying.
