GP Failure To Diagnose Medical Negligence Claims

If you have been under the care of your GP, you expect them to be vigilant and to take the necessary action for any problems that they find. If your GP fails to correctly diagnose an illness or injury, and you suffer more pain as a result of this failure, you may be able to make a claim for negligence.

Failure To Diagnose By Your GP

Failure to diagnose can mean that a serious illness has gone undiagnosed altogether, or that it has been misdiagnosed as a more minor affliction when urgent treatment should be given. This can frequently happen where symptoms can be mistaken for something more trivial, such as colorectal cancer, appendicitis, and meningitis. Evidently a failure or delay in diagnosis can have drastic consequences for a patient, as often there is a need for immediate treatment. If this is not provided, a patient's condition may deteriorate as a direct result of the failure by the GP. If this has happened to you or someone you know, you should seek urgent legal advice to discover your legal rights and your options.
