About Emma Wray

As a former Nursing Sister in Coronary Care Emma has twelve years’ experience of working in healthcare, giving her a wealth of useful knowledge to bring to my medical negligence practice.

Since qualification in 2009 Emma has always specialised in medical negligence work and she is an accredited member of the Law Society Clinical Negligence Scheme.

Her 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 medical negligence practice. Emma enjoys forensic examination of medical records (and identifying when records are missing or incomplete) and thorough case preparation from an early stage. Emma has a special interest in observing and encouraging adherence to the Duty of Candour to promote patient rights, and is a regular contributor to the firm’s website.

Emma is recommended in the independent legal directories Legal 500, 2024 and Chambers UK, 2024.
