I SPECIALISE IN UNEXPECTED SURGICAL OUTCOMES, FROM AN ADMISSION TO HOSPITAL FOR A SIMPLE PROCEDURE THAT THEN GOES WRONG, TO A CATASTROPHIC BRAIN INJURY CAUSED BY AN ANAESTHETIST LOSING A PATIENT'S AIRWAY.
“I have been really impressed with the way that Frances and the team have managed my case. Particularly, in the way that I have been kept informed all the way through. Everyone has been thoroughly professional and caring, a good mix. Thanks for everything that you have done and for the good wishes.” – Mrs S Rose 20th July 2016
The legal profession is my second career; the first was in nursing where I specialised as an intensive care and coronary care nurse/sister. This dual qualification affords me a particular advantage when risk assessing and handling cases, as my medical knowledge combines well with my legal expertise to enable me to provide specialist advice on a wide range of clinical negligence cases.
- Successfully settling a case for a young mother with two young children, following the death of her husband due to substandard care by 3 Consultants. This was despite an inquest finding no fault with any of the treatment. Damages were in excess of £1 million.
