GP Negligence Claims

We trust and rely on our GPs – often seeing them as our family doctor. When you are let down by your GP it is deeply upsetting, but there is also a worry that making a claim will result in you being refused treatment.

Although the law says this cannot happen, it is important that any potential claim is thoroughly assessed and sensitively handled by specialist lawyers who ensure that you are treated fairly by your GP practice. What services do we offer?

We deal with all aspects of actions against GPs including:

  • Misdiagnosis.
  • Failure to refer to a consultant or specialist.
  • Failure to refer to hospital.
  • Incorrect prescriptions and medications.
  • Failure to diagnose and errors in treatment.
