Compensation for an error at a pharmacy

If you are feeling ill or unwell then chances are a trip to the GP will be in order. Once you have been thoroughly examined and a diagnosis has been made then you will be sent off to the pharmacy to get the medication that you need to put you straight back on the track to recovery. Although in many cases pharmacists are highly trained professionals, mistakes can still be made and as a result you could be left needing to make a compensation claim.
