GP or General Practitioners form the nucleus of the NHS healthcare system. Moreover, they are the main pillars of the primary healthcare system in the UK. It is true that patients trust their GPs most when it comes to receiving basic treatment or getting diagnosed. However, GPs commit inexcusable mistakes that become subject to litigation. If it was you or any of your family members who suffered the adverse effects of GP negligence, we recommend you to file a clinical negligence claim against a GP. Our GP negligence claim compensation solicitors can assist you in filing a claim in all possible capacities.
Understanding the role of GPs
GPs are not specialists. They have the basic level expertise in all branches of medical science and they are capable of diagnosing and treating basic illnesses. GPs are mandated to refer critical cases to specialists depending on the nature and severity of medical conditions as observed in patents. Therefore, these practitioners play a pivotal role in the healthcare system. How GPs interpret test reports and how fast they are deciding on the treatment procedure is a big determinant of patient health and wellbeing. This is where GPs make mistakes that change the course of treatment. Our medical negligence solicitors highly recommend filing cases against GPs who make such mistakes.
Common GP errors
GPs in the UK are expected to follow the NICE (National Institute for Clinical Excellence) guidelines. However, they fail in many cases to adhere to the healthcare standards. A clinical negligence claim against a GP is generally filed for the following reasons.
• Physicians failing in diagnosing severe meningitis
• Failing in detecting severe internal haemorrhage
• Failing in referring patients to specialists and hospitals with advanced infrastructure and resources
• Prescription errors
