There are roughly 2,500 general practitioners working in various health centres around Ireland today, and our GPs occupy a vital role in our country’s medical sector.
Your GP is your first line of defence – they are family doctors and, for most of us, they are the first person we see when we experience an issue with our health.
This is because the role of a GP is hugely dynamic – they are responsible for treating all kinds of common medical ailments, and for referring patients to hospitals and other practitioners for specialist or urgent care.
Because of how many different types of situations a GP encounters in their work, it is possible for mistakes to happen and for a patient’s health to suffer as a result.
If you suspect you are the victim of GP negligence, you may be confused as to what steps you should take in order to rectify the situation.
