The Official Solicitor v Allinson

LTL 18/5/2004 2004-05-18

Failure by General Practitioner to diagnose high grade invasive ductal carcinoma in left breast - appropriateness of existing guidelines for General Practitioners when referring for specialist opinion - assistance to be derived from general clinical experience of other patients as opposed to clinical data - risk of bias in data when only small samples used - low diagnostic sensitivity of mammography in calculating rate of growth of particular grade of tumour.
