GP Claims

Compensation for inadequate care

What is involved?

Are you concerned that you may have been harmed as a result of inadequate care from your General Practitioner? Loss of confidence between doctor and patient is particularly distressing, because most people expect to have a long term professional relationship with their GP.

Unfortunately, the pressure on GPs in some surgeries is such that consultations are extremely rushed, so it is understandable that sometimes the care they provide may not be as good as you expect. However, the result of inadequate care can be serious and can amount to clinical negligence.

Our Clinical Negligence team is renowned for their expertise. We have investigated GP claims such as misdiagnosis (e.g. meningitis misdiagnosed as flu), failure to diagnose, delayed treatment or failure to treat, incorrect treatment, failure to refer to a specialist, and prescription errors such as being given inappropriate medicines or where serious side effects of drugs are not made clear.

Compensation varies depending on the problems you have encountered as a result of failures, the care you have needed and the expenses you have incurred.
