GP Negligence Claims

When you’re concerned about your health, the standard course of action is to book an appointment with your General Practitioner (GP) to get to the bottom of it.

Normally, GPs do a fantastic job of putting your fears at rest and deciding on the best course of action to help you get better as soon as possible. However, doctors can sometimes misdiagnose your symptoms which can have a wide range of consequences.

Due to the high volume of patients and the fact that GPs must advise on a vast range of potential illnesses and courses of treatment, mistakes can be made and issues of negligence can occur. If you feel that you’ve been affected by negligent treatment at the hands of a GP, you may be able to make a claim. You’ll find much more information about recognising the problem and dealing with it on this page.
