Making a negligence claim against your GP
The role of the GP is to identify when you need to be referred for specialist treatment and to arrange assessment with appropriate urgency. GPs also manage many conditions themselves and provide basic general medical treatment.
Medical negligence compensation claims against GPs often stem from a failure to identify the seriousness of presenting illness and a failure either to refer for specialist assessment or failure to refer quickly enough.
GP negligence cases can be catastrophic for the people involved as many conditions, if identified and treated quickly enough result in full recovery, while, if left, result in long-term disability or death.
GPs act often as the liaison between hospitals and patients and so system errors at the GP practice can lead to further personal injury to patients. For example: A GP’s failure to recall for tests or a GP’s failure to refer on to another speciality.
GPs provide much treatment themselves and errors can occur in the prescription of drugs and surgical procedures.
How can we help you?
Making a claim for GP negligence is a straightforward process, we guarantee to you that there will be no cost to you at all, whatever the outcome.
How to make a GP negligence claim
Our expert GP negligence claim solicitors need to show that your GP has failed to give you proper care and treatment (has been medically or clinically negligent). We also need to show that because of your GP's failure you have suffered personal injury.
We will discuss your GP negligence case with you in detail, take your statement and obtain your medical records. We then ask an independent GP to confirm, that on the basis of your evidence, the care you received can be criticised. The next step is often to ask a senior independent medical consultant exactly how your condition would have been improved had the GP treated you properly.
