GP Negligence

Your GP has a duty of care to you.

GPs are often the first medical point of contact for patients seeking advice and treatment, and although GPs are not specialists in any specific medical field, they are required to have a broad medical knowledge.  They should know how to treat basic medical problems and when a referral to a Consultant is required.   Sometimes, however, GPs do not provide the appropriate level of treatment or care, and this can sadly have devastating consequences to patients.

GP negligence can arise in a wide range of situations including:

  • Failure to diagnose Cancer
  • Failure to refer to a Consultant
  • Failure to prescribe medication or prescribing the incorrect medication
  • Failure to adequately examine a patient
  • Failure to act on test or scan results
