Cancer - Failure to Diagnose

The earlier a cancer diagnosis is made, the better the prognosis is likely to be. Unfortunately there are failings by GPs to detect the first signs of cancer and make referrals where appropriate. Even when a patient is appropriately referred by a GP, a diagnosis can be missed when Specialists fail to give sufficient attention to key symptoms, or when scans and tests are misinterpreted.

We understand the importance of acting quickly so that you can concentrate on your treatment and getting better.

NewLaw has a team of specialists who are dedicated to getting the best results for their clients in failure to diagnose claims.

When might I have a claim for misdiagnosis?

There are more than 200 types of cancer existing in the UK including:

  • Bowel cancer;
  • Breast cancer;
  • Lung cancer;
  • Ovarian cancer;
  • Prostate cancer;

Sometimes diagnosis can be difficult, however there are lots of guidelines that assist GPs in identifying the signs to look out for and they prescribe when the GP should refer the patient for specialist treatment or investigations.

In order to be successful in a medical negligence claim, we have to prove that a reasonably competent doctor would have made the diagnosis earlier, and an earlier diagnosis would have resulted in an improved prognosis.
