How can a GP be negligent?

For the majority of people, the first port of call when we fall ill is our General Practitioner. We rely on our GP to diagnose our illnesses and treat us appropriately. We also rely on them to refer us to a specialist doctor or hospital when required.

If a GP fails to do these things, this may mean that you have been in pain for much longer than necessary. Sadly, it may even mean that your illness can no longer be treated.

GPs can also prescribe the wrong medication or the wrong dosage. If you suffer an adverse reaction to the prescribed medication, then your GP may fail to spot the link and therefore fail to prevent you from taking the medication anymore.

GP negligence or errors can have catastrophic consequences and can even cause a patient’s death.

If you have suffered any injury as a result of an error by your GP, then you may have a claim for doctor negligence and our specialist team of solicitors will be able to assist you with a claim.

 It is important to contact us as soon as possible, as there is a limited period of time in which you can claim compensation.
