Damages – Personal injury. The claimant unsuccessfully brought a claim against his GP (the defendant) for damages for alleged clinical negligence. The claimant had contended that, if the treatment provided by the defendant at a consultation had been of a proper standard, the claimant would have been referred urgently to the local NHS mental health services, with the result that he would not have tried to commit suicide or suffered serious neurological injury. The Queen's Bench Division held that the claim failed on breach of duty and causation. It ruled that, on the balance of probability, the claimant had not disclosed current suicidal thoughts and planning to the defendant on the day of the consultation.
