How we can help

GPs and doctors are trusted to prescribe the right treatments to patients so they can fully recover from an illness. However, mistakes are sometimes made, which can result in a delay to diagnosis, meaning treatment is not offered quickly enough.

Our experienced and friendly legal experts have handled cases involving:

  • Failure to refer a patient for cancer investigations
  • Failure to diagnose meningitis
  • Failure to diagnose brain haemorrhages
  • Failure to order necessary tests
  • Failure to make planned referrals to a specialist
  • Not conducting a satisfactory medical exam
  • Prescribing the wrong medication
  • Failure to take the patient’s medical history into account
  • Failure to diagnose angina, which could lead to cardiac arrest

No matter how your GP displayed negligent behaviour, we want to hear from you.

Your GP’s duty of care

One of the most common types of GP negligence cases that we deal with involve delayed or missed diagnoses, which can have serious consequences for the patient. Your GP is often the first port of call for medical help or if you have developed certain symptoms. At the early stage of any medical issue, it is important that warning signs are spotted and appropriate action is taken. However, this does not always happen.

If your GP does not identify a condition properly, or if you are not referred to a specialist when you should have been, they are failing in their duty of care. If your GP has dismissed your concerns and does not take your complaint seriously, it could lead to a catastrophic scenario for you.

When serious conditions, such as cancer, are not spotted early enough, it can be life-threatening. This is why it is vital that justice is served following negligence of this kind.
