Barrister*

Area of Expertise

  • Clinical negligence

I joined Moore Blatch in 2004 after a long career in nursing at a senior level. I specialise in clinical negligence claims for patients and their families covering a wide range of often complex claims.

After attaining my law degree at the University of Southampton, I studied for the Bar at the Inns of Court School of Law and was called to the Bar in 1998 but elected to pursue a career in private practice in a firm of solicitors.

I deal with surgical, medical, obstetric and GP cases involving a wide range of conditions including brain injuries, diabetic amputation, haemachromatosis, delayed diagnosis of cancer and orthopaedic injuries. I also provide the clinical negligence team with advice on medical and technical issues.

I have spent a significant part of my nursing career, specialising in the management of intensive care patients and have extensive practical experience and knowledge. It is rare for me to encounter a medical condition I have not come across in clinical practice. I am also conversant with clinical governance processes in the acute care sector and held a temporary post as Quality Assurance Manager dealing with the maintenance and monitoring of health care standards before pursuing a career in medical law.

The knowledge and practical experience of healthcare processes gained from my former nursing career enables me to engage with my clients legal case on a broader level and also assists in helping many clients through what can be a difficult and sometimes traumatic experience.
