How To Sue A GP
What does 'GP' mean to you and your family? Many families will go to the same GP for years, some won't. Some people will go to a GP every couple of weeks, some won't. Some of us choose to invest in a private GP and others go to an NHS GP. Whatever your situation, your doctor has a duty of care to you in the eyes of the law.
GPs are in a position of trust and our health is in their hands. If they do not fulfil their role properly, this can have huge consequences. Therefore, if your GP has acted negligently and this has caused you or a member of your family harm, you have a right to sue them for compensation. Suing your doctor may seem like a daunting prospect but it does not need to be with 1st Claims. We will support you every step of the way.
So How Do I Sue My GP?

You can do this on behalf of a family member if they are unable to do this on their own. Second, you must think about keeping a record of your situation as it progresses. For example, if you fell ill with appendicitis and your GP failed to diagnose it, you should keep a note of the progression of your condition, if you are well enough to do so.

Along with a small amount of paperwork you may have to fill in as and when your 1st Claims lawyer sends it to you, this is all you will have to do to sue your GP.
