All medical practitioners such as doctors, nurses and dentists to name a few, are responsible for providing their patients with the minimum possible standard of care. If a medical practitioner delivers substandard care towards a patient, they can be held liable for any injuries, illness or worsening of the patient’s pre-existing condition, that happens because of their negligence. As a result, the patient would have the right to claim compensation for the injuries, from the hospital, doctor’s surgery or other medical institution where they were harmed.

General Practitioners, also known as GPs, play an important role in caring for patients at a local level. As well as offering treatment for more minor injuries and illnesses, they also have the power to refer a patient that is showing signs of a more serious illness or injury for diagnosis, and further treatment if necessary at a hospital. If doctors fail to notice serious signs of severe illnesses when they would have been expected to do so they could be seen as failing in their duty of care. GP’s are also responsible for correctly providing the most appropriate treatment to their patients, if they are negligent in prescribing medication, for example, too much of a certain medicine the patient may be at risk of overdosing.
