I am a Solicitor in the Medical Negligence Team in Bristol. I act on behalf of a range individuals, both adults and children, to assist in securing compensation following negligence by hospital trusts, GPs or other healthcare professionals.
I have experience in a range of medical claims including orthopaedic injury, birthing injury, delay in diagnosis, negligently performed surgery, spinal injury, brain injury and fatalities.
I work closely with clients and their families to ensure they receive treatment to support their recovery and specialist medical opinion to support their claim.
I also have experience of representing individuals following serious road traffic accidents.
The challenge the career brings and the ability to help others.
Knowing that what I do can make a positive difference to someone's life and wellbeing.
The team ethic and support network. From the partners to the support teams, we all work together to get the best results for our clients.
In my spare time I enjoy going to the gym, attending music events and attempting to play golf.
I also like to challenge myself and raise money for charity. I have done a skydive, abseil, half marathon and a sponsored sleep out.
“Charles was a much-loved husband, father and grandfather and his death has had a major impact on the entire family.
“Patients and their families place a huge amount of faith in the NHS to provide a quality standard of care. It is incredibly worrying that the original scan results were not acted upon at an earlier opportunity.
“While nothing can make up for what the family have gone through we hope that this settlement will help them try and look to the future the best they can.
“We join Charles’ family in calling for lessons to be learned and for communication between staff to be improved.”
“It’s such a fantastic sport as anyone can get involved and the joy on people’s faces as they achieve something during the game makes it all worthwhile.
“There is very little funding for disability sports and Boccia is no exception so we realise the value of being able to support the Boccia clubs across the UK. While it is all about taking part, who knows, some of our players might make the GB team in future.
“Irwin Mitchell is proud to be involved in activities like this because we have seen first-hand how disability sports can improve the recovery and rehabilitation both physically and psychologically of our clients, many who have suffered serious injuries or illness. For people with cerebral palsy, their opportunities for playing sports may be limited and Boccia provides that outlet for them to get involved.”
Donna had undergone counselling at the request of the Hospital Trust to prepare psychologically for double mastectomy so was incredibly shocked and upset to come out of surgery with permanent implants. This was already a distressing time and this just compounded her problems.
“The NHS had shown care and compassion in helping Donna prepare for her surgery. However, what was meant to be an operation designed to reduce the risk of Donna being diagnosed with breast cancer ended up causing her much unnecessary distress and suffering.
“We now call on the NHS Trust to ensure it learns lessons from Donna’s case and realises the importance of ensuring policies and checks surrounding patient consent are upheld at all times.”
