Serjeants’ Inn’s Conrad Hallin acted for the successful claimant, a Spanish national, following a failure to inform him of a diagnosis of a rare form of cancer, or to offer him appropriate monitoring.  The case, Gallardo v Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust (2017), represents an extension of the Montgomery principles in the context of the giving of information, including diagnosis and treatment options, post-operatively. It also confirms that the duty owed by an NHS Trust is non-delegable and continued to apply here even after the patient was cared for privately.
