How to find Medical Misdiagnosis advice
Suffering from a misdiagnosis in the context of medical negligence is a common problem faced by patients of medical practitioners around the UK. Medical misdiagnosis often occurs when a hospital or health worker provides an inappropriate method of care, fails to provide correct care and/or improperly executes a method of care.
In other words, the medical professional gets the diagnosis of a condition totally wrong. This can lead to lack of treatment, incorrect medication being dispensed and/or unnecessary surgery, all of which can worsen the extent and the impact of any illness or injury.
If a medical practitioner misdiagnoses a condition, it can have a long-lasting effect on a patient’s health. It is worth noting that a medical misdiagnosis can also occur when a medical practitioner fails to diagnose a medical condition completely, leading to unnecessary suffering and pain. Any of the misdiagnosis issues mentioned can lead to a medical misdiagnosis compensation claim, whether again your GP, an NHS hospital or a private medical facility.
