98% of our Clinical & Medical Negligence Claims are funded by a No Win, No Fee agreement, which is formally called a Conditional Fee Agreement. This means there is no financial risk to you.
GPs manage day-to-day problems and, although they are not usually specialists, they should know when to refer a patient to a more specialist doctor. Unfortunately, sometimes GPs make mistakes and these mistakes can be devastating.

Common Types of GP Negligence Claims
The National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) is putting guidelines in place to help GPs provide treatment and make referrals. Failure to follow those guidelines can result in negligent treatment, including:
• Failing to diagnose meningitis
• Failing to diagnose brain haemorrhage
• Failing to refer a patient for cancer investigations
• Failing to make planned referrals
• Prescribing the wrong medication/misprescriptions
• Failing to diagnose unstable angina, leading to cardiac arrest.
