It’s not surprising therefore that 55% of adults state that their main concern when visiting a practitioner is being misdiagnosed. If you are interested in the subject of medical negligence and would like to find out more about how to reduce it, I recommend that you take a look at the below infographic guide from the team at Hussey Fraser Injury Solicitors.
