Occasionally medical professionals will make a wrong decision regarding a patient's diagnosis. Mistakes of this kind are very common but in most circumstances the consequences may not be serious as the medical problem can be dealt with in time.
Occasionally though, a misdiagnosis can result in a condition being left untreated and it may be that an operation or more extensive treatment is necessary to correct the problem
Such misdiagnoses will result in a claim for medical negligence if it can be shown that the condition or initial injury should have been picked up if the doctor / medical professional had provided a reasonable standard of care.
