A bit about me
There is nothing more important than your health, and everyone deserves the best medical treatment. Sadly, when this does not happen, the results can have a devastating impact not only on you, but also on your loved ones.
Too often I see the feelings of patients are forgotten in a medical setting; I am passionate about being an advocate for those who have come to harm, through no fault of their own. I take pride in helping people to understand what has gone wrong with their medical treatment and achieve the necessary compensation to get their lives back on track. The legal process is not easy – or user friendly – so clients can be confident that I will listen to them, understand their concerns, and provide guidance to help put things right.
I have supported many people through various issues – from fertility treatment and inquests, to delayed cancer diagnosis and fatal incidents. I also work closely with and fundraise for Footsteps, a local bereavement support service.
Outside work, I love to read classic romance novels; I re-read Pride and Prejudice at least once a year!

- If you are unsure about the advice you are being given, do not hesitate to ask questions.
- When you think things have gone wrong, make a complaint. If a hospital is involved, contact their Patient Advice Liaison Service (PALS). They can be a good first port of call to understand why things have gone wrong and help ensure you get the necessary follow up treatment.
- Keep a note of dates and important information about your medical treatment. Sometimes what is in your medical records does not accurately reflect what is communicated to you.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long will a clinical negligence claim take?
Every case is different. On average, three years, but complex cases can take much longer. It greatly depends on the attitude of the defendant and the court’s timescales.
Will the case go to trial?
It is unlikely, but not impossible. Ultimately, if both sides cannot reach a settlement, a judge will need to decide at trial.
Will my claim be successful?
We cannot investigate a claim unless there are reasonable prospects of success. This depends on the results of our investigations and we are guided by medical expert evidence which we will obtain on your behalf.
