It's a very long story.
I was wrongly diagnosed as having mental illness when I actually had brain tumour for about 10 years. In which time, my career fell apart and I lost my city-centre apartment.
I had a medical negligence lawyer investigate over a period of about 10 years, with the defence ultimately stating that my GP had referred my for a brain scan. My mother(a retired physiotherapist) had accompanied me to the surgery on one occasion, informing my GP that she stated I had many neurological symptoms. My GP dismissed this evidence as a non-issue at the time (as noted in my medical records) The GP later used this as her defines.
From speaking to other GPs (Including her peers), the reaction has been of shock and shame. In fact my current GP (whose family have been close friends with my family for many years) turned chalk white before my very eyes! He had attended university with my former GP.
I propose to publicise my case on-line to illicit the same response from her peers and "name and shame her" resulting in the end of her career in medicine. Could I offer to sell her a non-disclosure agreement in order to keep quiet about it, or would this be considered as blackmail?
If so, is there an alternative?
No, she used the fact that I had been referred for an MRI scan as her defence, although it due to my mothers insistence From my medical records- "John's mother thinks he has a neurological condition. - I think this is a non-issue, but will refer him to keep his mother happy"I'm wondering if this is a statement that she was acting under duress.
Is there any legal way in which I could gain redress?
