I am a solicitor in the London office and specialise in helping people who have been injured as a result of medical treatment. I completed my training contract at Irwin Mitchell’s London office before qualifying into the medical negligence team.
I have successfully handled a number of cases covering of a wide variety of issues including spinal injuries, orthopaedic injuries, negligently performed surgery and mis-prescribing of medication. I have experience of representing families where a death is suspected to have arisen from substandard medical treatment.
I have a particular interest in cases involving injuries to the bowel. I understand how challenging it can be to live with what can be seen as a ‘hidden disability’ and the knock-on effect such an injury can have on an individual’s quality of life.
As well as running my own cases, I assist senior members of the team with very high value and complex claims such as representing clients with cerebral palsy.
I have received a variety of press coverage, including an appearance on the BBC show Inside Out - click here to find out more.
People come to us because they suspect that something has gone wrong with their own or a family member’s medical treatment. It is rewarding to support and guide them through the clinical negligence process to find the answers and explanations they have been looking for.
I enjoy working with a compassionate team of people whose expertise is second to none. As well as achieving fantastic results, there is a clear commitment to ensuring our clients have access to the resources and rehabilitation that they need to move on with their lives.
I’m a keen supporter of my local rugby team and can often be found cheering them on at stadiums across the country. I also enjoy pilates, cooking and singing with the Irwin Mitchell choir.
“Kofo was a vulnerable woman and her loved ones placed great faith and trust in Hammersmith and Fulham Mental Health Unit to care for her.
“The details heard at the inquest are hugely concerning and it is vital that the Hammersmith and Fulham Mental Health Unit show that lessons have been learnt from this tragic case. The safety of patients should always be the fundamental priority.”
“We would like to thank the coroner for providing Angela’s family with the opportunity to hear from medical staff about the events leading up to Angela’s death. Angela’s family had many questions about the treatment she received and the evidence heard at the inquest has provided some answers.
Angela’s family is obviously devastated by her death. She was the main carer for her husband, a lower limb amputee, and was active and independent. Her daughter Caroline has however been incredibly frustrated to find that, before we became involved, the Trust had not carried out a formal internal investigation into her mother’s death.
“To find out that there were mistakes in Angela’s care was extremely disappointing and raises questions over the process of investigating incidents. The Duty of Candour was implemented for a reason and it is important that the NHS takes it seriously.
“The NHS needs to ensure it learns from its mistakes but it can’t do that unless it acts with transparency when things go wrong. The family hopes that lessons will now be learned to improve care for others.”
