Compensation for administration of the wrong prescription

Dealing with general illnesses is usually the job of a GP and in most situations once you have visited your local GP they will issue you with a prescription which is designed to provide you with medicine aimed at making you feel better and healing any health issues which you might have. Putting together the right prescription is the job of your GP and if you end up with the wrong prescription then you could see your existing symptoms worsen.

Once you have received your prescription you will usually take it to a pharmacy for creation and at this time it’s the responsibility of the pharmacist to ensure that they provide you with the correct medication for your needs. If you feel that they haven’t done this then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim.

WHO COULD ADMINISTER THE WRONG PRESCRIPTION?

There are many different people who you could claim against for injuries sustained from an incorrectly administered prescription. In general, you can make a claim against your pharmacist if you believe that they have been negligent in the creation of your prescription and perhaps used the wrong ingredients. You could also claim against your GP if you feel that they have given you the incorrect prescription.

WHAT ARE SOME SYMPTOMS OF INCORRECT ADMINISTRATION?

If you are the victim of being administered the wrong prescription then there are a number of potential medical problems that could occur and these include:

  • Development of new symptoms
  • Failure to treat existing symptoms
  • Worsening of existing symptoms
