GP Medical Negligence Claims with Sweeney Solicitors
General Practitioners (GPs) are often the first point of contact for many seeking medical advice or
treatment. They play a crucial role in our healthcare system, addressing a vast array of health
concerns and referring patients to specialists when required. While many GPs offer outstanding
care, there are unfortunate instances where errors occur, leading to potential harm for the patient.
At Sweeney Solicitors, we stand firmly by those affected by GP medical negligence, ensuring they
receive the justice and compensation they deserve.
Understanding GP Medical Negligence
Medical negligence by a GP can manifest in various ways, including:
- Misdiagnosis or Delayed Diagnosis: Where symptoms are overlooked or misinterpreted,
leading to incorrect treatment or late interventions.
- Prescription Errors: Prescribing the wrong medication, incorrect dosage, or failing to consider
potential drug interactions.
- Failure to Refer: Not sending a patient to a specialist when it’s clinically necessary.
- Inadequate Patient Examination: Not conducting a thorough examination, which may have
highlighted a medical issue.
- Not Following Up: Failing to follow up on test results or missed appointments that could
reveal serious health concerns.
The Ramifications of GP Negligence
Mistakes made at the primary care level can lead to:
- Worsening of an existing condition.
- New health complications.
- Emotional distress and loss of trust in the healthcare system.
- Potential long-term impact on overall well-being and quality of life.
