GP Claims & Compensation
A General Practitioner (GP) will generally have a life-long and trusted relationship with the patient and is most often the doctor to whom a patient first attends in order to assess a problem. Your GP assesses a wide variety of problems and based on their knowledge, skill and experience, you rely upon them to decide whether it is necessary to refer a patient for specialist help.
What is GP negligence?
As with all areas of clinical negligence, delay or failure to refer can have devastating, long-lasting consequences for a patient and can unfortunately sometimes be catastrophic with life-changing outcomes.
GP negligence is a situation where a GP fails to provide a reasonable standard of care, resulting in harm or injury to the patient.
GP negligence can include:
- Failure to diagnose. For example, possible strokes/brain haemorrhages.
- Failure to refer to specialists for investigation or treatment.
- Failure to refer urgently, for example in the case of meningitis or cardiac arrest.
- Prescribing incorrect medications or dosages.
Patients who have been harmed as a result of GP negligence may be entitled to compensation and should seek legal advice from a specialist medical negligence solicitor.
