What Is The Role Of A GP?

Compensation claims against GPs should never have to be made. However, if your GP has provided you with sub-standard care, a medical negligence claim is sometimes the only way you can obtain justice.

A GP (or general practitioner) will treat most medical conditions. They play a central role in referring patients to specialist hospitals to make sure they get the correct treatment.

Your local GP will focus on all areas of your health. This include your physical and psychological condition. Due to the wide range of health conditions GPs need to be able to identify, it is extremely important that they are attentive and vigilant when caring for patients.

If your GP fails to listen to your symptoms carefully, they can make mistakes. These mistakes can be very serious and lead to prolonged and worsening health conditions. Often, a mistake made by a GP will amount to negligence, this results in compensation claims against GPs.
