Your General Practitioner (GP) has an important role in your everyday health, and for many people is their first point of contact when suffering with an illness or ailment. For this reason, the decisions that GPs make can have huge consequences for your health and wellbeing. They are responsible for prescribing medicines, referring you for treatments to relevant specialists if they believe it to be necessary, and advising you as to the best course of action according to your needs as a patient.
For these reasons, when things go wrong, the consequences can be very serious. Perhaps your GP has misdiagnosed your condition and you have become ill as a result, has made an incorrect referral, or even provided inappropriate medication in relation to your health problem.
All of these scenarios, and many others, are a serious breach of what is referred to as a ‘duty of care’, whereby all doctors are required by law to ‘act in the patient’s best interests’. It goes without saying that this includes making the correct decisions about your healthcare, given the level of trust that most people place in their doctor’s training, experience and judgement.
