Samantha, from Middlesbrough, visited her GP in January 2011 with a two-week history of abdominal pain and vomiting. Thereafter, Samantha attended numerous appointments with the same symptoms. By March 2012 her condition had deteriorated to the extent that she attended A&E. She complained of ovulation pain and vaginal discharge. An ultrasound scan was reported as normal, and no further investigations were undertaken.

Samantha’s condition was further complicated by two miscarriages, one in 2012 and another in 2013. In addition, her symptoms of abdominal pain and vaginal bleeding failed to resolve.

Between December 2012 and her eventual treatment in August 2017, Samantha experienced a wide range of symptoms. Those symptoms include nausea, headaches, abdominal pain, haematemesis, urinary frequency, aches and pains, low mood, anxiety, anger problems and episodes of self-harm. Samantha had continued to attend her GP during this time.

Eventually, in July 2017, Samantha’s symptoms were investigated, and she was diagnosed with hyperparathyroidism. She then underwent surgery in August 2017, following which her physical symptoms have gradually improved. However, Samantha has continued to struggle emotionally, despite attending counselling sessions.

Pryers Solicitors was assisted by a GP expert, A&E expert and endocrinology expert. It was alleged that at various stages Samantha’s GP was negligent for failing to further investigate her symptoms and failure to follow up on abnormal calcium levels.

The GP maintained a denial of liability throughout. However, it was revealed that they had received some abnormal calcium results and had been asked by the Trust to make a referral to endocrinology.

In the end, the defendant offered Samantha £40,000, which she accepted.
