GP negligence

The need for specialist advice:

Our GPs work long and hard, and naturally they sometimes make mistakes. Unfortunately, those mistakes can have serious consequences for the patient.

Where an error by your GP – or support staff – results in an injury or illness, you could be entitled to compensation. If so, expert legal advice is essential in this highly technical field of law.

Let our experience make yours that much easier:

At Woodcocks Haworth and Nuttall our team of experienced specialists will ensure you receive the highest level of compensation.

Common problems include:

  • Failure to properly deal with hospital test and investigation results
  • Errors resulting from the prescription of the wrong drug, or an incorrect dose
  • Ill-health due to inadequate monitoring of a repeat prescription
  • Failure to refer you promptly, or at all, to a specialist, or for tests related to concerning symptoms.

If you have suffered illness or debility as a result of GP negligence, we will explain the legal process to you in straightforward language and be at your side every step of the way through your claim.
