GP Neglect

A General Practitioner (GP) is involved in the preliminary diagnosis and treatment of most medical conditions. They carry out the preliminary examinations and refer on those patients who need specialist care and attention. Prior to the treatment for any disease, there is diagnosis of the medical disorder. If there are any problems with the diagnosis of the illness then there may be large errors in the treatment and can cause serious health problems which could also jeopardise the patient's chance of healing completely

All GP's are under a duty of care to deliver treatment in the supreme interests of the patients. Although this doesn't happen commonly, unfortunately medical diagnosis and treatments errors can occur due to your GP or medical practice. Your GP may be unsiccessful to provide a reasonable standard of care, resulting in your distress in some way, which can be termed as GP negligence - a form of medical negligence.

Why Should I Make A GP Negligence Claim?

Making a GP negligence claim following a delayed or misdiagnosed treatment is a significant step for various reasons. If you or a loved one has been injured due to a medical professional's negligence, we firmly believe you should get the compensation, which you deserve.

Your GP negligence claim can earn you the much-needed compensation that can help you to pay your medical expenses for any current or future care and treatment that are often being carried out by NHS doctors and medical staff or any other private hospital medical professionals. It can help improve the system which can prevent other people to suffer the same medical misdiagnosis and mistreatment. Claiming GP negligence compensation can also help you cover the cost of adaptations to your home and life.

When Can I Make A Claim for GP Negligence?

If the prescribed treatment or medication by your GP is wrong, or a diagnosis is delayed or wrong, the consequences can be distressing for the patient. Hence the patient can make a claim for compensation. Some of the common areas of GP neglect claims that we have dealt with are:

  • Failure to refer to a specialist
  • Failure to maintain proper record
  • Failure or delayed diagnosis of an illness
  • Failure to recognise suspicious symptoms
  • Failure to adequately examine the patient
  • Failure to suggest initial tests/additional tests
  • Failure to prescribe appropriate medication
  • Failure to attend scheduled home appointments
  • Failure to interpret examination results accurately

If your type of claim is not listed above, please do not hesitate to contact our GP negligence solicitors and we'll guide you, if your condition allows for a compensation claim.

How Much Compensation Will I Receive for GP Negligence?

The amount of compensation awarded for GP negligence depends on a number of different aspects. This includes the severity of the injruy caused, combined with any financial losses, the effect of the damage on your life outside work, and whether your medical injury will require further treatment and care.

Is There A Time Limit On Making A GP Negligence Compensation Claims?

Yes, in most medical negligence cases, you have 3 years time to make a compensation claim, starting from the date the negligence occurred or the date you first became aware of GP negligence, also known as the 'date of knowledge'.

However, it is recommended that you make your claim as soon as possible whilst the incident is fresh in your head so that it is easier for you to gather evidence and recall exactly what happened. This will make it easier for you to claim for compensation.
