- Failure to attend on a home visit
- Failure to act on test results
- Poor record keeping
- Inappropriate prescribing of drugs or failure to review medication
Many people feel that they aren't able to pursue a claim against their GP either through loyalty or because of difficulties in registering with a new GP, who will not know your medical history. But a victim of GP Negligence is just as likely to require the care and assistance or financial recompense as a victim of hospital negligence.
