Thank you for all your hard work, I will recommend you to friends and family if they ever need your services.
As the care provided by GPs is general, errors in judgement can occur. This can sometimes lead to the wrong medication being prescribed, incorrect referrals, failure to send patients for an x-ray and misdiagnosis of conditions.
Proving a medical negligence claim involving a GP:
- Breach of duty: As their patient, your GP has a duty of care to you. They must consider your symptoms or concerns and make a reasoned and rational decision about what is causing the problem. If the possible cause of your symptoms is outside their expertise, they should refer you to a relevant medical professional who can carry out further tests and investigations. We have to prove that your level of care fell below the standard expected of a competent GP and was therefore negligent.
- Harm: we need to prove that the negligence caused you harm
A GP’s negligence could have serious consequences for you and your family. If you’ve suffered harm as a result of your doctor not treating or diagnosing your condition properly, get in touch to see if we can help you make a no win, no fee claim for compensation.
