When we are unwell our GP is often the first person that we turn to. A GP can become a loyal and trusted friend. While the majority of the time the standard of service that you receive from a GP is very high, mistakes can happen.

When things go wrong

While many mistakes may not lead to anything some of these mistakes can have serious and sometimes fatal consequences.

We rely on our GP to fully investigate symptoms we present them with and if these are not diagnosed or investigated sufficiently, or early enough, a GP may have acted negligently.

Even if a GP recognises symptoms that need further investigation failure to act on test results in the appropriate manner or refer a patient on to a specialist can lead to complications or further medical conditions.

Prescribing the incorrect medication to a patient can also lead to problems.
