OTC’s Fiona Horlick defends surgeon working for Mid Staffs NHS Trust in performance case

Barrister Fiona Horlick from Outer Temple Chambers (OTC) has successfully defended a surgeon working for the Mid Staffs NHS Trust in a month-long performance case brought by the General Medical Council.

His work in breast, abdominal and skin surgery was assessed along with other aspects of his work. At the end of the hearing, his performance was found not to be deficient nor was he issued with a warning.

Horlick was instructed by Julie Hesketh of Ryans Solicitors and the MDU. The doctor involved has commended both for handling his case with ‘a high degree of professionalism, knowledge, experience and skill’.
