Georgie Cushing (Nee Kerr-Dineen)

Solicitor

Biography

I am a solicitor in the Medical Negligence team in our London office. I qualified in September 2014, having spent 16 months working in the team.

I specialise in compensation claims for individuals who have been injured as a result of clinical negligence by GPs, hospitals, private consultants and other healthcare providers.

I have a varied case load which includes claims arising from obstetric, neonatal, anaesthetic, ophthalmic, surgical, cardiac, psychiatric and emergency care. I also have a number of fatal cases and assist families with the inquest process.

I am committed to getting answers for families who have lost a loved one as a result of poor medical care and to assisting in the rehabilitation process for those who have been injured as a result of negligence.

    Heartbroken Family Call For Improvements At Berkshire Care Home After Tragic Death Of Their Father

    “This is a harrowing case and Alan’s family are finding it incredibly difficult to come to terms with the sub-standard care he received whilst a resident at Woodbury House Care Home. “The safeguarding investigation conducted by the council concluded that he was neglected and that there were several failures by staff to meet even the most basic of his care needs. “Basic nursing errors like the ones in this case should simply not occur. It gives nursing a bad reputation when the vast majority of nurses should be praised for the excellent work they do in what can be very difficult circumstances. “Pressure sores of this kind are completely avoidable if proper care is given and procedures are followed. We are investigating whether more could and should have been done to prevent Alan’s suffering. “Given the level of neglect described in reports by the council, Woodbury House Care Home now needs to ensure it learns from this and makes the necessary improvements to ensure this never happens again. “I imagine the families of people staying in Woodbury House will be deeply distressed to learn that concerns for care practices have now been extended to a second BrighterKind care home, The Berkshire, and that a police investigation is now underway.”

    Coroner Finds Failure To Adequately Monitor Mother And Baby May Have Changed Outcome

    “This is a tragic case of the death of a baby, which could have been prevented. Ginta and Linas have had a distressing time in the last year and they have been desperate for answers as to why Emily died. “It was extremely difficult for the family to listen to the evidence given during the inquest today but they are grateful to the coroner for conducting such a thorough enquiry into Emily’s death. “Ginta and Linas are relived that the trust has admitted liability for Emily’s death and apologised for the poor care they received. “Unfortunately nothing can be done to change what happened in this case but the family hope that lessons will be continue to be learned from this tragic incident to ensure that no other family has to go through the heartbreak they have. “The Inquest into Emily’s death comes a few months after Jeremy Hunt announced his aim to half the number of stillbirths and neonatal deaths in this country by 2030. The family welcome this initiative and hope that by sharing Emily’s story, they will be raising awareness of this issue and ensure it is addressed.”

    Widow Calls for Improvements In Mental Health Care After Husband Took His Own Life In Hospital Whilst Under 1:1 Observation

    "This is a tragic case in which a man died due to multiple failures in care by the very organisation responsible for protecting him whilst he was vulnerable. “Feeling suicidal is a temporary state of mind; if appropriate and timely care is provided to people who are experiencing deep unhappiness and distress, this can diminish the risk of them ending their own life. The necessary care was not provided in Rory’s case and he and his family have been severely let down. “Rory’s family are pleased that the Trust has admitted responsibility for Rory’s death and hope that steps will be taken to improve the standard of care provided to mental health patients to prevent cases like Rory’s from happening again. “Rory’s inquest comes just a couple of weeks before Mental Health Awareness Week and highlights important lessons which need to be learnt about patient safety in a mental health context.”
