General medicine is the diagnosis and treatment of infection, illnesses and injury to the internal organs by non-surgical means. This can include treatment to the lungs, heart, gut, liver, pancreas, kidneys, blood and skin, to name but a few.

The specialist doctors and nurses who deal with general medicine often work and care for their patients with the highest standards of care but sadly sometimes that may not be the case.

When things go wrong

The law surrounding the legal field of medical negligence is extremely complex and difficult. We understand that being ill can be a very frightening and worrying and our solicitors are sympathetic when listening to and dealing with the problems you are experiencing.

Mistakes can be made which can extend the pain and suffering of either yourself or a loved one. Our solicitors are happy to investigate if there is any evidence to suggest that there has been any negligence including:

  • Failing to diagnose and treat an illness, infection or medical condition
  • Failure to refer you for appropriate specialist treatment as soon as possible
  • Incorrect drugs which can result of further side effects
  • Failure to recognise brain injuries or serious blood conditions
