General Practice and Community Health

GP’s and community health care practitioners are on the frontline of meeting your healthcare needs. They are frequently your first port of call. Importantly, they are also often gatekeepers to you being able to access further medical attention or intervention. Therefore you place an enormous amount of trust in these health care professionals, and as such, when there is a resulting problem, from a failure in their duty of care, the effects can feel incredibly personal and make you feel extremely vulnerable. These services not only include general practice but also community health services such as community midwifery, district nursing, occupational therapy and physiotherapy.

Whilst these community services are invaluable and often meet your healthcare needs, they are open to human error which can have significant ramifications for your ongoing health. You may receive bad advice, wrong treatment, misdiagnosis or a failure to refer on. We will strive to prove on your behalf if a health care professional acted in a manner that fell below the expected standard.

We understand that your situation may have caused you distress and anxiety. Please Contact Us to see how we can help.

Independent reviews
from our CLIENTS

I am writing to you personally to say thank you to Attwood's for a job well done with my recent claims. It initially started out as one claim, but eventually became a little more complicated when another was added following a review of my condition by one of your dental experts. Throughout the last couple of years as the claim has progressed I have been fully supported by your colleague Luke Taylor. I have thanked him personally for all the good work and support he gave me over the last couple of years, it was quite a journey for both of us but with the right outcome, but I just wanted to also highlight to yourself the good service and support he provided me with. It was very much needed and appreciated. He has always been very professional and the advice he has given has always been with real feeling and thought, and not the "just my job" attitude. Even when I was very wary of what to do next, he always explained it in simple terms for me understand and move forward. If I ever need similar help in the future, your company will be the first I contact. With my sincere appreciation and regards.
