General medicine negligence claims

The term ‘general medicine’ covers a range of medical treatments. For example, conditions affecting the heart, chest, bowel, blood, kidneys, soft tissues or skin all come under the umbrella term ‘general medicine’. Some doctors may specialise in one of these areas, but many treat more than one or even all of them.
