James Pantling-Skeet

Legal Executive

Area of Expertise

  • Community Care

I joined Moore Blatch in April 2017 as part of the Community Care team. I have a legal background in the healthcare sector, which makes me well placed to advise my clients on a range of community care issues.

I help our clients by challenging decisions made by public bodies including the NHS and Social Services through internal complaints procedures, appeals, and where necessary, court action in the form of Judicial Review.

In particular, I advise and represent families in relation to NHS Continuing Healthcare claims. I can assist at any stage of the Continuing Healthcare process, whether it be from preparation and representation at the early stages of a claim (such as at the Checklist Assessment or a Multi-Disciplinary Team Meeting), all the way through to challenging a Continuing Healthcare eligibility decision at a Local Appeal or Independent Review Panel stage, and through a complaint to the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman. 

In addition, I advise and assist clients on Deprivation of Liberty; Safeguarding; Court of Protection Health & Welfare, Best Interests Meetings; Disability Discrimination, and Housing Issues. 

Outside of work I volunteer as a Child Bereavement Counsellor and Fundraiser with the Child Bereavement charity, Simon Says. I am an active member of South Hampshire Junior Lawyers Association. As a member of Lordshill Running Club, I enjoy running and cycling in my spare time. 

Testimonials

"A big fat thank you for all your help, I am sure without you we would not have achieved the results that we did. I was so impressed by your professionalism, leading the meeting and steering it to the conclusion we wanted. Your information gathering was excellent, you left nothing to chance and covered every angle. They didn't stand a chance against your thorough inclusion of everything relevant, I know report gathering from various hospitals and wards and social workers is not easy, especially as they are not linked, so all the background info is not known to everyone and is actually a vital missing link, I had no luck, so I do realise how much effort went into that. Once again thank you." A private client

"Thank you for your collective efforts in advocating for Mum through this testing process. Much appreciated to you all for your efforts and expertise. Thank you doesn’t go far enough. This is a tremendous success for our mum." A private client

“Thanks for putting James Pantling-Skeet on to our case. We have been very impressed with him. James has navigated the complexities superbly. We have a way to go yet before everything is resolved but we are feeling much more confident of a positive outcome for our daughter now that James is involved.” A private client
