Our Medical Law Information team offers a wide range of services relating to data protection, freedom of information law and access to health records / information.
Examples of the areas of work we have assisted clients with are as follows –
We have advised an NHS Trust in relation to a request for disclosure of investigation reports and supporting materials to a Claimant's Solicitor where a potential claim is being considered. The interplay between the Civil Procedure Rules and data protection legislation was considered where that disclosure potentially provided personal data which may be wider than the issues within the claim itself, and appropriate redaction of appropriate information was undertaken on behalf of the Trust.
I am an associate in the healthcare team and deal with a number of contentious and non-contentious healthcare matters.
