General Practitioners (GPs) are responsible for making sure their patients receive the most appropriate treatment for their condition, whether that is by prescribing medication or by referring them to a consultant for specialist treatment.
The importance of the care provided by the GP cannot be underestimated, but they can make mistakes and these errors can be devastating for the patient. These errors can result in serious, long-term problems, and in some cases death.
Common GP negligence often involves:
- Insufficient investigation of symptoms
- Incorrect prescription of medication
- Insufficient or inappropriate action taken following test results
