Claims Against GPs

Despite being a highly trained there are circumstances in which medical professionals make mistakes that can affect their patients lives forever.

If you have suffered from unnecessary illness or injury as a result of your GPs negligence our solicitors can help you to make a claim against GPs.

Why would I make a Claim Against my GP?

General Practitioners (GPs) are an integral part of the NHS and the first point of contact for most patients with their medical complaint.

GPs provide a complete spectrum of care within the local community: dealing with problems that often combine, physical, psychological and social components.

Using their extensive medical knowledge, it is for them to decide the subsequent course of treatment for a patient and to make medical diagnoses.

However, human error can occur at a cost to the patient and sometimes, their family. Misdiagnosis can lead to time spent on the wrong medication, at a detriment to a patient’s existing condition, while missed diagnosis can cause distress and further suffering.

A patient is owed a duty of care by their GP and to perhaps not have your concerns taken seriously or followed up can force a patient to lose trust in the entire profession.

In these circumstances those affected will be entitled to make a claim against their GP.
