    Your family GP is normally the first port of call when you’re worried about your health. However, sometimes things can go wrong. If your GP lets you down then we can investigate what went wrong and seek redress on your behalf.

    Often GP compensation claims relate to a failure to diagnose an injury or a condition promptly or at all. Such delays in diagnosis and treatment can lead to additional pain and worry for you until the proper diagnosis is reached. In more serious cases it can lead to a significantly worse outcome for you, for example as you have missed a window of opportunity for optimal treatment or surgery. In more serious cases, for example where the GP failed to diagnose cancer promptly, the delay can be fatal.

    Fighting on your behalf

    From the outset we will guide you through the process and strive for answers on your behalf.

    Specialist medico-legal expertise

    Our dedicated team has specialist experience in GP negligence claims of this type. We will investigate your legal claim thoroughly to find out what went wrong and to find out what we can do to put things right.

    Offering support and guidance

    Our experienced lawyers understand what a difficult time this is for you. We know you may have concerns about investigating the treatment you received because you have known your GP for a long time. We’ll examine the medical evidence and will advance your claim with efficiency and sensitivity.

    Putting you back on track

    Where a GP has provided substandard treatment and it’s led to a worse outcome for you, you’re entitled to claim for compensation to get your life back on track.
