It is a commonly held principle that a doctor owes a duty of care to their patients. Much more controversial is whether a doctor can owe a duty of care to somebody who is not their patient.
As a former Nursing Sister in Coronary Care I have twelve years’ experience of working in healthcare, giving me a wealth of useful knowledge to bring to my clinical negligence practice.
Since qualification in 2009 I have always specialised in clinical negligence work and I am an accredited member of the Law Society Clinical Negligence Scheme. My practice encompasses a wide range of cases from high value complex cases (including child brain injury and spinal injury) to cases of more modest value (but often equal complexity) across the whole range of clinical negligence practice. I enjoy forensic examination of medical records (and identifying when records are missing or incomplete) and thorough case preparation from an early stage. I have a special interest in observing and encouraging adherence to the Duty of Candour to promote patient rights, and am a regular contributor to the firm’s website.
