• Failing to take a patient’s history into account
• Failing to examine a patient properly or to note all their symptoms
• Failing to carry out the right investigations (including X-rays, scans and blood tests)
• Failing to interpret investigations properly
• Making administrative errors.
Sometimes doctors make mistakes in treating a condition, and common types of compensation claims include:
