Failure To Treat

We've got your failure to treat claim covered

Failure to treat

It is common knowledge that when you have a minor ailment, it would tend to be your GP who you visit initially. General Practitioners are fully qualified doctors and should be able to easily offer a diagnosis and relevant treatment for the issue.

It is your GP’s responsibility to be able to identify more dangerous or life threatening conditions and therefore be able to take the relevant actions to facilitate a recovery for the patient. Failure to treat could result in long-term complications or injuries that are more serious.

If you feel that your GP has been negligent towards you then you may be able to make a claim against them.

You may be able to claim if:

  • GP has failed to diagnose a more serious problem
  • The diagnosis they have provided is incorrect
  • Prescribing incorrect medication as a result of a misdiagnosis
  • Failure to treat an illness within their remit
