Although many people have a trusting relationship with their general practitioner (GP), mistakes can happen that may have very serious consequences for the patient. If you or someone you know has suffered medical negligence at the hands of your GP, it is important you are able to claim compensation to help with your pain and suffering.
At Waldron & Schofield, we understand you may be less willing to make a claim against your GP than against another medical professional whom you do not know as well. However, compensation is intended to help you get your life back on track after an injury or illness, so you should not be dissuaded from claiming the money to which you are entitled. Claim with us today by calling 01706 624029 or by completing the enquiry form on this page.
The role of a GP
A GP has a very serious role in healthcare. Among the main services they provide are:
- General medical care
- Assessment of all patient problems
- Providing health advice
- Preventative care
Because a GP has such an important job, there is always the possibility that mistakes are made that can lead to serious injury or illness. For instance, a GP may fail to:
- Examine a patient adequately
- Liaise with other healthcare professionals accordingly
- Investigate symptoms properly
- Refer a patient to a specialist when necessary
- Act accordingly on test results
