In order for a claim to be successful it is necessary to show that both of the following apply:
There has been a breach of duty – this is where conduct has fallen short of the duty of care owed, for example if a GP has not provided a reasonable standard of care.
There has to be a causal link between the breach of duty and the injury suffered. To make a successful claim the breach of duty must have caused the patient an injury.
- Failure or delay to diagnose, such as not carrying out the correct medical tests required
- Failure to refer a patient for specialist treatment
- Giving treatment which is unsuitable for a particular injury which results in the injury worsening or not getting better
- Surgery which is not required or carried out poorly
