The latest report on complaints made to NHS hospitals last year compiled by the NHS Ombudsman shows that misdiagnosis is the largest single cause at 36% of the total!

"Over the first two quarters of 2014-15 diagnosis (including delay, failure to diagnose and misdiagnosis), was the single most common reason leading individuals to complain, accounting for 36% of the complaints the Ombudsman investigates about acute trusts, a slight increase from the 35% of complaints caused by this issue in 2013-14.“
