GP Negligence Claims

GPs have a duty of care towards you, and although most of the time they provide the best standard of care, sometimes things are missed or the care is substandard.

We understand that claiming against your doctor can be daunting, but your claim will help prevent unsafe, or unsuitable practices in the future, so other patients won’t have to suffer. Your GP will not be held personally responsible for any financial compensation, they have insurance that covers events such as this.

Some of the areas we might be able to help you claim include:

  • Late or incorrect diagnosis
  • Failure to refer the patient for specialist care
  • Errors prescribing medication
  • Needle related injuries

How can we help?

Here at Negligence Claimline our friendly team are here to help you get the support you need. Working with a panel of specialist medical negligence solicitors, we can assist you with your potential claim.

Sometimes an apology is enough, but in other cases compensation will be the only solution to help you get your life back on track.

Our service, putting you in contact with one of our expert panel members, is free and you are not obliged to take the advice the solicitor gives you, or to progress your claim any further if you do not wish.

Can I sue the NHS?

The NHS was created so that good healthcare should be available to all, and it is one of the country’s proudest achievements. However, if something goes wrong during your treatment you deserve answers and, where necessary, financial compensation.

We do not treat your claim lightly. The treatment you consider negligent must be considered unreasonable, irresponsible, and harmful.

However, when someone suffers an injury that impacts their live, or that of a loved one, then it is vital that the NHS has the procedures in place to both compensate the patient and learn from their mistakes.
