We've got your GP claim covered

GPs are often the first call many of us make when we experience a medical condition, and these providers are tasked with delivering the best care possible. In many cases, your GP will make a referral to a specialist who can more directly handle a particular medical issue, after a full assessment is complete. In other scenarios, GPs make a diagnosis and then create a plan of treatment which may involve surgery or medication. Regardless of the reason for your GP visit, you can expect to receive expert medical attention when you need it most.

The unfortunate truth is that not all GPs take the time to gather all the details pertinent to your condition. This means the initial assessment they make about your well-being and need for treatment is inaccurate or incomplete. Without a proper referral to a specialist or the right solution to your medical issue, you may experience a delay in the care you truly need. When this takes place, medical negligence is often to blame.

How can we help?

Errors made by your GP can be devastating. At Patient Claim Line, one of the biggest complaints we see is GPs not listening to you, and therefore not getting it right. GPs dismissing symptoms as ‘nothing’ when they should have referred you on for further treatment or investigation. Sometimes this means a delay in diagnosis, causing weeks or months of pain that could have been avoided if they had got it right the first time. Other times, such as misdiagnosis of cancer, those delays in treatment can literally be a matter of life and death.

At Patient Claim Line, our team understands the stress, frustration, and even anger that a negligent GP can cause you. We will listen to you and we will be able to advise you very quickly if we think your GP has been negligent. We take on many cases involving GPs, and will obtain all your GP and hospital records to be able to assess what has gone wrong and ensure you are fully compensated for any unnecessary pain and suffering. If you were or are unable to work, we will ensure those costs are included in your compensation claim as well.

What are some common claims I might make against my GP?

When it comes to making a claim against your GP there are a number of areas where you could consider making a claim and these include:

  • Failure to diagnose a serious illness
  • Failure to refer to a specialist for treatment
  • Issuing an incorrect prescription
  • Failure to record patient information correctly
  • Failure to complete a proper patient examination

Am I eligible to make a claim?

GPs have a tough job to do, but that does not mean that they don’t have to get their job right. If you have been misdiagnosed, or feel you should have received treatment sooner then you did, then you could be entitled to make a claim.

Patient Claim Line is here to advise you on this.

The best thing to do is get in touch with us and we will be able to advise you very quickly whether or not there is a claim. It costs you nothing to find out if you have a case, and all our claims are dealt with by specialist Medical Lawyers, on a strictly no win no fee basis
