GP and Nursing Claims

Our GP is often the first person we will turn to if we feel unwell, or have a concern about our health. GP’s, as with other doctors and specialists, sometimes make mistakes, leading to a period of avoidable pain and discomfort, and on occasions, result in a more serious and disabling injury.

We have dealt with, and continue to deal with, many claims against GPs and are happy to advise on whether you may have a claim.

GP Failure to Refer

Mrs R was seen in the Accident and Emergency Department of her local hospital as she was concerned by a sharp and constant abdominal which had developed. She was reassured and discharged. The following day she was seen by an out of hours GP as the pain had become worse and couldn’t be controlled by pain killers. On examination the GP found her tummy to be rigid and she was distressed. The GP diagnosed a panic attack but he should have considered the possibility she had serious problem and referred her to hospital for investigation. She was in fact suffering with peritonitis as a result of a perforated ulcer. Sadly she died the following day. The GP admitted he should have referred her to hospital and the case settled for £125,000.00.

Pressure Ulcers

Ms C developed pressure ulcers on her sacrum. Due to a lack of care by the District Nurses the ulcers were allowed to deteriorate, to the point she was admitted to the Critical Care Unit of the hospital suffering septic shock. She required a number of operations, given the recurrent breakdown of the ulcers. Her claim settled in the sum of £35,000.00.

Thank you for all your help and support over the years. It’s been a great pleasure being associated with your company. God bless you all. Client testimonial

GP failure to act on a mole

Mrs G went to her GP on a number of occasions concerned by a mole of her neck. Due to doctor mistake she was wrongly reassured on a number of occasions there was nothing to worry about.
