GP Negligence Compensation Claims

GP Complaint Specialists

The GP surgery is the first port of call for most people who feel unwell. It is important that GPs have a comprehensive knowledge of the examinations and tests needed to determine the cause of your symptoms, and then to prescribe the required medication, recommend the optimal treatment, or refer you to a specialist doctor.

Make a GP negligence claim

It is vital that your GP carries out the necessary examinations and tests to determine a correct diagnosis and treatment plan, in a timely manner. If they get it wrong, your condition may be missed, causing you unnecessary pain and suffering. This may further exacerbate your condition meaning you suffer for longer and may result in more invasive treatment as a consequence.

Common mistakes that GPs can make include:

  • Failure to properly examine you
  • Failure to perform or arrange appropriate tests
  • Misdiagnosing your illness or condition
  • Prescribing the wrong medication
  • Failure to provide or arrange treatment
  • Failure to refer to hospital or referring you to the wrong specialist
  • Performing inappropriate procedures or performing procedures without the correct expertise
  • Failing to act on information provided by other medical professionals.

If you feel you have been let down and suffered injury as a result of negligent treatment by your GP, you may have a claim for compensation and other losses.
