It is the job of a GP to treat patients for minor injuries or illnesses. If a patient shows signs of a more serious medical condition, then it is the GP’s responsibility to refer them to a specialist department in a hospital. Unfortunately, general practice medical negligence cases do occur. For example, if a GP misses the signs of a serious medical condition that they would have been expected to identify and fail to refer a patient to a specialist for a diagnosis and possible treatment, their condition could worsen as a result which could cause GP negligence. If a GP prescribes patients the wrong medication, or the wrong dosage of medication it could lead to adverse health effects.

For many of us, putting a loved one such as a parent in a care home or nursing home, is one of the most difficult decisions that we may have to make. We rely on care homes and nursing homes to care for vulnerable people, who are no longer able to care for themselves. If the home neglects their duty of care to their residents and they are harmed as a result, you can feel upset and distressed on behalf of your loved one. Examples of care home and nursing home neglect could include, a resident suffering bed sores due to a lack of turning, care home abuse by care home staff, or a resident being given the wrong medication meaning that their current health condition worsens as a result.
