• I am an associate in our clinical risk team. I have considerable experience in all aspects of medical law, with a varied portfolio, managing cases and supervising members of the health team. I am aware of client aims and look to their specific needs and expectations, providing advice that is legally sound, practical and commercially effective.
     
    I provide advice on a range of subject matters including all aspects of the mental capacity act. I have extensive experience providing advice in response to mental health queries, inquests and ethical decision making within the legal framework. I am also a data protection, freedom of information and record keeping lead. Likewise I have led on cases dealing with governance issues, judicial review and continuing NHS healthcare.
     
    I have acted in many cases successfully heard at the Royal Courts of Justice and through the Court of Protection, representing the NHS, local authorities and Care Homes.
     
    I have published several articles in leading Journals, sit on ethics committees in the south west, and provide training to professionals within NHS organisations.
