We offer specialist advice and advocacy to both claimants and defendants in all aspects of clinical negligence claims and a wide range of healthcare issues.
This ranges from minor injury cases and inquests to multi-party actions and public inquiries. Our Silks and juniors have extensive experience in cerebral palsy cases, regularly negotiating multi-million pound settlements that sometimes approach as much as £10m.
In the healthcare arena, we act in the First Tier and Upper Tribunal, the Administrative Court, the Court of Protection and the High Court. We represent in inquests and in claims for compensation arising out of psychiatric care and breaches of the Human Rights Act.
Professional discipline work includes appearing before the General Medical Council, General Dental Council and the Nursing and Midwifery Council. We also advise on public law and human rights issues arising from disciplinary proceedings and their related contractual and employment issues; and Chambers’ expertise extends to criminal proceedings in a healthcare context.
We have wide experience of multi-party clinical negligence litigation, public inquiries, internal NHS reviews and other extra-judicial investigations.
