How to switch to a different doctor and use a legal team to make a claim against your current one
If you feel that your doctor has acted poorly or negligently against you, making you feel uncomfortable or unhappy or even causing you further illness, you should consider moving to another doctor as soon as you can. It is not worth trying to stick with a doctor who does not have your best interests at heart, because it is your health at stake. You need to find a doctor who will work well with you to make you better more quickly. Here are some ways in which you can switch to another doctor quickly and easily and how to make a claim with a Treharris legal team:
- Speak to your doctor. If there is no animosity between you and your doctor, and you just feel that you don’t work well together, you could always ask your doctor for the recommendation of another doctor. This could help you to find a good doctor that you trust, and with whom you are comfortable.
- Look online. Check out the reviews and recommendations of surgeries in your area to find a doctor with whom you think you will be happier. You are looking for an overall good rating at the surgery, to be sure that you will have a good experience.
- Call the surgery. You need to ask if you are able to switch, as some surgeries will not allow someone who already has a doctor to switch onto their service unless they have moved.
- File a complaint. If there is animosity between you and your doctor, and you have reason for complaint, filing a complaint may help you to automatically switch off onto another doctor. Be specific with your complaint, and don’t simply complain for the sake of switching over as your surgery will see straight through this.
