The General Medical Council (GMC) has previously revealed that it receives more complaints about GPs than about anyone else in the medical profession. Most of us attend our GP surgery at some point throughout our lives; some more than others.
As GPs are specialists and have a wide knowledge of medicine. They use their skills, judgement and experience to decide whether it is safe or not to refer to a specialist for help and when help is needed.
Although GPs are not specialists, their role is to refer the matter if they deem that it falls outside their expertise. Unfortunately they can sometimes make mistakes, and this can cause suffering as a result.
