Types of GP negligence

There are several common examples of GP negligence:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Late diagnosis
  • Wrong prescription (or wrong dose)

GP negligence could also occur where your GP fails to make a referral. Early-stage signs of a medical condition could reasonably require further investigation – if you feel that you have experienced GP negligence because your doctor did not make a referral within a suitable period of time, we can help.

GP negligence – who can claim?

GP negligence can occur at any stage during your diagnosis or during your course of treatment. This includes any oversight on behalf of a medical professional during the supervision of any necessary aftercare (e.g. ensuring correct dosage of any medication, or ensuring fresh dressings).

Conditions commonly linked to GP negligence

  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Skin conditions
  • Orthopaedic injuries
  • Neurological injuries
  • Respiratory conditions

Other examples of GP negligence include any instance in which you have received incorrect or misleading advice in matters relating to non-illness or non-injury. For example, you may have experienced GP negligence in the due course of pregnancy or when preparing for cosmetic surgery.
