For most of us visiting our GP is our first point of contact with a medical professional and fortunately the majority of the time we receive a professional service. The strain on GP services is, however, clear and on occasion the service we receive can be poor and may even be negligent. When the issue is a critical one, the outcome can be catastrophic for the patient.
Most commonplace the fore in terms of GP negligence is Misdiagnosis; where often symptoms that should form the basis of a reasoned approach for a referral instead are instead used to justify conservative or soft treatment and consequently disease or injury is allowed to spread or intensify.
Typical GP Negligence claims can include:
• Delay or failure to diagnose Cancer correctly or delay in the same
• Poor assessment of symptoms or incorrect clinical approach
• Failure to refer for tests e.g. radiology, blood, urine, faecal
• Failure in co-ordination or referral of secondary care services or consultant review
• Continuity of service failures or referral management centre delays.
