Misdiagnosis occurs where a trusted medical expert or health care professional incorrectly identities or diagnoses an illness thereby causing more complex issues which can often lead to serious medical issues and even fatality.

Because we are reliant on medical professionals to diagnose our symptoms correctly, any mistakes in diagnosis can have consequences for our health

Misdiagnosis can occur in three main ways:

  1.  Missed Diagnosis  – Where the medical professional does not identify the illness or health issue following an examination and the consideration of a patient’s symptoms.


  1. Delayed Diagnosis – Where there is a delay in diagnosing a patient or there is a delay in giving treatment which results in the patient suffering more additional or more complex health issues.


  1. Incorrect Diagnosis – Where a patient has been incorrectly diagnosed or treated for an illness which they do not have.
