I am a solicitor in the Medical Negligence team, based in Birmingham.
Prior to this I worked in International Personal Injury claims, handling high value and complex cases where people have suffered an accident abroad.
“It is reassuring that Public Health England has advised that the risk of infection is low and testing is being carried out as a precaution, however, this news is likely to cause concern amongst the patients affected.
“Patient safety should always be the priority for all health practitioners. We hope that this case acts as a reminder of the importance why hygiene standards need to be upheld at all times.
“To help maintain public confidence in the health service it is vital that a full and transparent investigation into the potential issues that have been highlighted is conducted.
“It is also important that in the unlikely event that any patients are found to be infected they are aware of and receive the care and support they need.”
“Jimmy’s experience has been a lot for a boy of his age to cope with and it is perhaps unsurprising that he was nervous of returning to football and running – two things he loved before his injury.
“The family hoped for nothing more than a relaxing break, but instead had to deal with a very stressful and distressing accident.
“It is important for the family that lessons are learned from Jimmy’s accident and that both Thomas Cook and the hotel ensure the safety of guests there.”
