A cancer patient whose GP failed to diagnose the disease three times told ITV News' she would support the naming and shaming of doctors who continually misdiagnose people.
Rachel Bown said: "I've been lucky that I was picked up on the third time when I look at a lot of my friends who have been much less lucky than I have and a lot have now died."
She added that it was absolutely vital to publicise GP's who continually misdiagnosed.
"I think anyone can make a mistake once or twice," she said, but if it was a continual thing she would "definitely support" naming doctors.
She added that patients need to be clearer about their symptoms. GP's have to be a lot more probing and the government needed to provide more funding.
