If GPs Fail their Duty of Care You Can Sue Them For Negligence!

GP Surgery Vandalised Wilson Street Surgery Derby

As always is the case “it wasn’t us, it was you” scenario I read today that a GP surgery was trashed in Derby and the bad press surrounding poor GP management is to blame.

My thoughts, there are two sides to every story.

I am not saying it was right to vandalize a surgery by any means and I find writing and publishing can do more damage than physical interactions. Anyone thinking of taking out their frustrations through physical interactions will face dire consequences. A GP practice is a small business that depends on people to come to them, as that is how they make their money. Obviously, they are subsidised by the NHS but the pharmaceutical companies also pay them.

So when I read the latest on another surgery being trashed there is obviously more to this than meets the eye.

According to the GP Shehla Imtiaz-Umer @drshehlaiu published on Twitter on Dec 30, 2022

“The anti-GP violence, abuse & aggression continues unabated. This is our waiting room @wilsonstsurgery y’day after a patient trashed it. The negative media narrative, anti-GP rhetoric, unrelenting demand & unrealistic expectations lead to this level of violence. Where will it end”?

From a personal perspective if GPs managed their workloads better this would never happen. Yet I can cite medical negligence from my own surgery on the following faults.

  • Two letters were written marked private and confidential, both letters were confirmed to be put on the system and both times I was told that a clinician would get back in touch with me, and did not. Furthermore, on an annual medical assessment, a cluster pharmacist confirmed she had read my letter which I quote she said “it was very thorough and that’s what doctors like. Everything I do is documented and published and will be used in evidence. https://disabledentrepreneur.uk/gp-doctor-negligence-evidence/
  • On another occasion, my daughter prior to being diagnosed with MS the GP prescribed her Gaviscon because the doctor did not really know what was wrong with her. So I took my daughter to A&E and after an MRI scan, it was found my daughter has Multiple Sclerosis.
  • Recent interaction by my daughter who had medication prescribed by a neurologist was refused the medication until my daughter arranged a consultation with the GP. When the doctor phoned her back the doctor did not know what she was phoning my daughter for.
  • Monthly monitoring of my daughter’s blood has only been done once since her treatment. When my daughter tried to chase it up she was told to phone the neurologist’s secretary. It is cited on the government website that monthly blood tests have to be done, yet the neurologist has not flagged this up.

People who are frustrated with the way their GP Surgery performs should gather evidence in writing and then start legal action. The last thing you need is to owe money to a doctor as in the case of the recent incident in Derby and instead hit them where it hurts in their pockets if they show medical negligence.

There are more incidents similar to the one published today by simply doing a Google search.

Looking into the Google Reviews of this surgery that was targeted speaks volumes:

Whenever I write articles I always back them up with evidence and sources.

I have simply done a Google search for the search term “Surgery Vandalised” Obviously I am not Google and won’t list them all, but there must be something a miss when there is civil disobedience.

If you have an issue with your surgery do not take it out on the staff or the furniture but instead, start legal action”.

I have a list of links you can use to get started.

If you need our help writing letters we can draft a document (you do not need to disclose any personal information), we will send you a generic template and you can edit it and fill in the blanks, which you can then send to relevant organizations.

Do not simply send an email instead attach a letter on headed paper to make it more official.

You should also find a solicitor in your area or contact citizens’ advice for legal advice. If you have a story to tell and want to share it with our readers just use the form below and we will publish it for you after it is reviewed by one of our team.

Wishing everyone a Happy New Year! Remember there is always a solution to every problem.
