‘Significant prejudice’ influenced negligence claim against GP: Supreme Court

The mother accused the Sydney GP of delaying her daughter's leukaemia diagnosis.

A mother’s stress and trauma after her daughter was diagnosed with leukaemia contributed to her making “fanciful” allegations against her GP, a court has found.

The Sydney GP was accused of calling the mother a hypochondriac and threatening to ban her from the practice if she tried to make further appointments for her daughter.
