The consequences of medical negligence
It’s a sad and sobering fact that medical negligence can have serious and devastating consequences. If you feel that your GP has been negligent towards you in any way, you should consider making a claim for compensation. Some doctors in the UK see over 100 patients a week and only have a few minutes to spend with each patient, so unfortunately mistakes can and do happen.
Misdiagnosis is one of the most common forms of medical negligence. Some serious illnesses present symptoms similar to minor illnesses, for example, meningitis is often misdiagnosed as flu or a rash. The consequences of such a misdiagnosis could be serious or even fatal. Other forms of medical negligence include;
- Failure to diagnose an illness
- Incorrect treatment
- Failure to treat the patient or delayed treatment
- Errors with prescription – for example, prescribing inappropriate medication or failing to make patients aware of the serious side effects of a drug
- Failure to refer patient for specialist treatment if required
