I am a Solicitor based in the Cambridge Office of Irwin Mitchell, specialising in medical negligence. I represent those who have suffered serious injury (both physical and psychological), or lost loved ones as a result of avoidable errors in their medical treatment.

I joined Irwin Mitchell as a Solicitor in January 2017. I have five years previous experience in Healthcare Regulation (working for the Nursing and Midwifery Council and General Dental Council) and have experience in defending medical negligence claims. My previous experience has given me a good insight into the standards required of medical professionals and a strategic approach to pursuing claims and challenging the counter-arguments advanced.

I deal with all aspects of medical negligence claims, including:

  • Delayed diagnosis and prevention failures in relation to strokes
  • Avoidable deaths including stillbirth and neonatal deaths
  • Brain injuries including birth injuries
  • Maternal injuries during childbirth
  • Surgical errors
  • Failure to treat infections
  • Failure to provide adequate mental health treatment resulting in serious injury or fatalities

I run a broad range of cases as well as assisting senior solicitors within the team with their complex and high value cases.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

With this type of work I am, inevitably, meeting people experiencing a very difficult period in their lives. My role allows me to assist my clients through this and take some of the burden from their shoulders. This in turn allows my clients to focus on rebuilding their lives and work towards a more positive future.

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

I am very proud to work for a firm that are leaders in the medical negligence field. Irwin Mitchell’s expertise in this area are second to none and they have a wealth of resource available, both internally and for clients. This allows us to provide a complete package of services to clients and to use our depth of knowledge to get the best results for clients.

There is also a very strong team ethic and supportive environment, which makes it a great place to work.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

I am new to Cambridge, having grown up in Norwich and spent the last 6 years living and working in London. So, at present, I can be found exploring Cambridge in my spare time.

    “Our clients understandably remain devastated by their loss and the inquest has raised many heart-breaking details concerning what Mrs Jocelyn went through prior to her death. “The issues highlighted in this case should have been avoided through proper and comprehensive care, particularly considering Mrs Jocelyn had such complex needs. This truly is a tragic case which could have and should have been avoided; Mr Jocelyn has lost his wife of 56 years as a result of needless errors. “It is absolutely vital that lessons are learnt and further training provided where necessary. Following the evidence heard at the Inquest, it is hoped that the Trust will continue to implement the recommendations made in their own Serious Incident Report. The safety of patients should always be the fundamental priority of the NHS and the terrible issues seen here should simply never be repeated in the future.”
