Paul McNeil, Head of Personal Injury and Medical Negligence
General practice claims result from medical negligence by a general practitioner (GP). Although rare, our medical negligence solicitors have successfully pursued cases against GPs for negligence.
Many people are reluctant to pursue a claim against their GP through loyalty or concern over future treatment. But the impact of GP negligence and the need for care and financial assistance can be similar to hospital negligence.
GP negligence claims include:
- Failure to investigate symptoms
- Failure to refer to a specialist
- 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
