A GP is someone you should be able to trust. They’re your first port of call if you’re feeling unwell. And when you visit the GP’s surgery, you expect them to uphold their professional ‘duty of care’ and protect your wellbeing. In fact, according to a recent survey, 95% of UK patients said they had confidence in their family doctor.
But sometimes, they do make mistakes. Signs may be missed, symptoms overlooked. And if you’ve suffered due to the action or inaction of your GP, you could be entitled to claim for GP negligence. To discuss your case with our team of experts, just give us a call on 0800 110 5888.

What type of GP negligence can I claim for?
Experiences of GP negligence can vary greatly in terms of their severity, from the doctor not taking your symptoms seriously enough to prescribing the wrong – potentially dangerous – medication.
As a general term, it refers to any instance in which a GP has failed to comply with the guidelines set by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE). And here at Injury Lawyers Direct, we can assist with a diverse range of GP negligence compensation claims, including (but not limited to):
- accidents caused by a GP (e.g. being cut by a needle)
- failure to consider your medical history
- failure to investigate symptoms
- incorrect diagnosis or prolonged illness
- incorrect treatments or prescriptions
- failure to refer you for tests or specialist care
- failure to act upon test results
- poor record-keeping
Not only are we leading medical negligence solicitors, we have access to a sub-team of consultant insurers, barristers and medics – who are all at the top of their field and extremely experienced in this area. So even if your specific experience isn’t listed above, that shouldn’t be a problem.
What’s more, it doesn’t matter if the negligence occurred at an NHS or private GP surgery. If their actions have caused suffering, any doctor can be held responsible for GP malpractice – and the chances are, you will be eligible for compensation. So it’s worth contacting our specialists.
