Prescription Errors Claims


When a GP writes a prescription it is paramount that it is for the correct medication at the correct dosage. Failure to take care can result in a patient getting medication that they are allergic to or not getting medication that they need to treat a medical condition. As well as prescription errors and incorrect medication can be handed out by the Pharmacist (dispensing errors). It is important that these errors do not happen because you should only take medication that has been prescribed for you at the correct dosage.

The following are a list of problems that can occur when a patient unknowingly takes the incorrect medication:

  • Suffer allergic reactions
  • Suffer symptoms of a medical condition that their medicine should prevent
  • Suffer complications as a result of a medical condition not being controlled properly
