Misdiagnosis forms the largest percentage of medical negligence claims.
The consequences of misdiagnosis can be devastating and lead to delays in patient’s receiving the treatment they require.
While we enjoy a health service that’s second to none, the fact of the matter is that every now and then a doctor, a dentist, a surgeon, or any other practitioner or clinician can make a mistake, and that can have painful, lasting consequences for the sufferer. The annual report from NHS Resolution indicated that 40% of claims related to wrong, failed or delayed diagnosis. Misdiagnosis has many different forms but some of the most common we see are; a serious illness allowed to progress unchecked or without being correctly identified, wrong medication prescribed due to the misdiagnosis of the condition, test results misinterpreted or not properly assessed, or treatment delayed because of misdiagnosis, which allows the condition to get worse.
