I am a solicitor in the Clinical Risk team, based in the firm's Birmingham office.
I work closely with NHS Resolution and NHS Trusts across Birmingham and the West Midlands. I defend a range of complex and high value claims including vascular, colorectal and urological injuries, oncology and fatal claims.
I have spent time on secondment assisting a local hospital Trust as acting Head of Legal Services. This has armed me with an in depth understanding of the on-going and varied complexities associated with the governance of a Trust. I also understand some of the myriad of daily requirements and constant challenges faced by all NHS staff.
My broad commercial, business management and legal background brings with it a natural objective to manage relationships successfully, work proportionately and as cost effectively as possible. This is balanced with providing professional support to clinicians and to all those involved in the progression through to the conclusion of each case I conduct.
