Compensation for GP Misdiagnosis

When we are ill or in poor health a trip to the GP is usually on the cards. Although GPs do work hard to ensure that we are looked after to the best of their abilities, sometimes errors are made and the main problem is that when errors are made during the initial diagnosis stage it does have the potential to lead to far more serious injuries later on.

If you feel that you have been the victim of GP negligence then you could consider a compensation claim to cover any injuries that you have sustained as a result and any further income that you may lose as a result of on-going health issues.

What is the responsibility of a GP?

In general a GP is responsible for your health and well-being. They are responsible for identifying any potential health issues that you might have and doing the appropriate tests to ensure that they are not serious and don’t require further treatment. They are also responsible for ensuring that you receive adequate treatment for any existing injuries that you have.

By law your GP must ensure that they give you the best possible treatment based on your situation, this means performing X-rays and tests where needed. If you do find that they have failed to do this, then you could look to make a claim for compensation against them. 

What potential issues might have occurred here?

You could have been the victim of GP misdiagnosis in a number of situations including:

  • Claims for a missed diagnosis
  • Claims for a mis-diagnosis
  • Claims for a failure to refer to a specialist
  • Claims for failure to adequately read x-rays and scans
  • Claims for an incorrect prescription.
