Claim against your Doctor
General Practitioners make a irreplaceable contribution to the wellbeing of UK citizens, and in the vast majority of consultations, correct medical advice and treatment is given. However, on rare occasions, GPs fall short in the care they provide to their patients and in such situations this lead to serious medical complications, physical and emotional trauma, financial loss and, in the most serious of cases, premature death.

The reasons for GPs failing in their duties towards their patients are numerous; they may be tired or overworked; they may be poorly trained or inexperienced; there may have been a breakdown treatment systems or communication; or, for many reasons, they may not have taken their patient’s complaints seriously enough.
