Make your claim >>

Our medical negligence team can help you to secure compensation in many different types of negligence claims against doctors, surgeons and GPs.

GP Negligence Claims

The National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) is putting guidelines in to place to help GPs provide the best treatment possible and make referrals. Failures to follow those guidelines can result in negligent treatment including:

  • Failure to make planned referrals
  • Failure to refer a patient for cancer investigations
  • Failure to diagnose brain haemorrhage
  • Failure to diagnose meningitis
  • Prescribing the wrong medication
  • Failing to diagnose unstable angina, leading to cardiac arrest

This list is not exhaustive but gives some idea as to the kind of negligent treatment that can lead to patients seeking compensation.

Hospital Negligence Claims


Failing to diagnose a problem, diagnosis of the wrong condition (misdiagnosis) or delaying a diagnosis are mistakes that can be made by doctors. These hospital errors can cause serious damage and injury and are often as a result of:

  • Failing to take patients full history into account
  • Failing to examine a patient fully and properly or failing to note all of their symptoms
  • Failing to carry out the right investigations (including X-rays, blood tests and scans)
  • Making administrative errors
  • Interpreting results incorrectly

Treatment Errors

Sometimes mistakes are made when treating a condition and common types of compensation claims include:

  • Failing to give the correct treatment
  • Failure to notice when a patient’s condition worsens
  • Not operating when necessary
  • Failing to provide adequate care after surgery
  • Neglect
  • Mistakes in surgery
