I have a background in science having initially studied a chemistry degree before pursuing a career in law and qualifying as a solicitor in 2012. I joined Irwin Mitchell’s clinical negligence team in 2017 after relocating from the North West.

I handle a range of cases including those involving spinal, orthopaedic, obstetric and gynaecological injuries, cancer, and fatal cases.

I am also a qualified Boccia Coach.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

I have always had an interest in both law and medicine. My background in science helped me choose a specialism in clinical negligence and continue to learn about all areas of medical treatment.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

More often than not, I find that clients pursue clinical negligence claims to get answers and find closure. I find it very rewarding to provide clients with these answers regardless of the outcome of their claim. 

What Do You Like About Working For Irwin Mitchell?

I am grateful for the opportunity to work with a reputable and leading firm and alongside skilled solicitors in clinical negligence. Irwin Mitchell has the resources to allows us to go above and beyond for our clients and ensure that we give them the best outcome possible.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

In my spare time, I enjoy travelling and visiting as many different countries as possible and taking part in energetic activities such as caving, zip lining, walks in national parks, and sky diving.


"The support that I had was professional in every way. I was treated with respect and understanding. Queries to requests were handled promptly and thoroughly. Above all I had trust in Sarah and Tracy, the team that supported me." - Gwen, client.

    Bowel Cancer Survivor Calls For Lessons To Be Learned After Enduring 16-Month Delay In Diagnosis Following Inappropriate investigations

    “This is a hugely concerning case where Peter, who had a family history of bowel cancer, faced an unacceptable delay in the diagnosis of his cancer. “While Peter has thankfully recovered as well as could be expected from his bowel cancer, it has had a significant impact on his life and he now faces many challenges. “Bowel Cancer Awareness Month is an important time to reflect on the disease and the huge impact it has had on so many lives, but it is also an opportunity to recognise the importance of providing the right care and pivotally, that starts with early diagnosis. “Whilst we are pleased that the hospital trust admitted liability early in the case, allowing Peter to try and focus on the future and his recovery, it is also vital that lessons are learned from his case to improve patient care. Therefore we welcome the assurances provided by the Hospital Trust that appropriate testing protocols are now in place.”

    Yorkshire Man Who Lost His Wife To Sepsis Speaks Out On World Sepsis Day

    “The level of care that Pamela received fell way below what patients should expect to receive with devastating consequences. “Pamela’s case is a tragic example of what can happen when undiagnosed infections are left untreated, highlighting the importance and need for a prompt diagnosis of sepsis so appropriate care and treatment can be administered as soon as possible. “We work closely with UK Sepsis Trust to raise awareness of the condition and more must be done to educate our doctors so that the signs of sepsis are recognised earlier when the chances of survival are significantly greater.”
