Have you suffered due to NHS or GP negligence?

If you have experienced poor treatment in a hospital or surgery run by the NHS, we can help you to get justice.

What is NHS or GP negligence?

Everyone should be able to feel safe when in the hands of a healthcare professional. Therefore, we understand how distressing it can be to suffer negligence while under the care of your GP or an NHS centre of care. Examples include:

  • Misdiagnosis – This is where a patient’s illness is either mistaken for something else or missed entirely by GPs and other medical professionals. Misdiagnosis can be easily avoided, which makes it all the more difficult to deal with when it happens.
  • A&E negligence – This occurs when someone is sent to an A&E department and not given the correct treatment right away; they could be discharged too early, for example.
  • Failure to report to a specialist – GPs must report you to a specialist doctor at a hospital if you have a serious illness; not doing so could be harmful to your health and well-being.
  • Pharmacy errors – When an NHS pharmacist either prescribes you the incorrect medication or a dosage that’s too high or too low.

How much can I claim?

Although money may not be the first thing on your mind - you should make sure you recover as well as you possibly can first - you can claim based on how severe your case is, whatever financial losses have been incurred, and how long recovery is expected to take. The most severe cases of NHS negligence could even fetch upwards of £100,000 in compensation.

How long do I have to claim?

If you wish to make a claim, it should be done as close to when you gained knowledge of the NHS or GP negligence that you or a loved one has suffered as possible. We at First4lawyers understand that this will be a distressing time for you, and our expert solicitors will handle your case with the level of sensitivity that is required.
