I specialise in pursuing clinical negligence claims on behalf of claimants against NHS Trusts, GPs and other private healthcare providers. I provide specialist advice on a wide range of issues including obstetric, gynaecological and surgical injuries. I am experienced in bringing claims as a result of birth injury and I have particular interest in claims involving infertility, IVF and surrogacy costs. I have also been involved with a large group action consisting of over 200 women against Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust.
