When these mistakes are made, patients have a right to seek compensation if the treatment was negligent.

Examples of medical negligence by a GP include:
– Misdiagnosis – where an illness is mistaken for something else, or is missed altogether
– Failure to refer to a specialist causing a delay in diagnosis – your GP must refer you to an appropriate specialist if you have a serious or ongoing illness
– Prescription errors – when you are prescribed either incorrect medication or a dosage that’s too high or too low.
– Failure to see a patient or visit them at home after having said that they will do so
– Failure to carry out appropriate tests/investigations

for sub standard breast surgery
for misdiagnosis of a kidney tumour
for misdiagnosis of pulmonary embolism
for substandard mental health care
