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.

Usually there won’t be a problem with your treatment but if there is, our medical negligence specialists are here to help. You can talk to someone who has the experience and knowledge to help you find out what has gone wrong and what you can do about it.
