I am a partner in the Clinical Risk Department and lead the medical law team. We provide advice and support to healthcare organisations, in particular NHS clients, in inquests, court of protection matters, challenges to treatment decisions, health and safety and general clinical practice. We are a team of 12 lawyers working out of Bristol, London and Birmingham. We take pride in providing high quality support which is clear, user-friendly and responsive.
I specialise in general medical law and am a nominated partner for NHS Resolution. I have a special interest in mental health and capacity law and provide accredited training for s.12 doctors and approved clinicians for the Royal College of Psychiatry.
'The support in the run-up to the inquest was impressively thorough. My colleagues and I felt well supported and my clear impression is that everyone involved in supporting us went out of their way to be helpful and considerate during this long and at times difficult process. Mr Lindsay was consistently and impressively outstanding in performance throughout the preparation for the inquest and during the inquest itself. He demonstrated in-depth knowledge of the case, impressive sensitivity to the needs of the team, he was available and flexible, including cancelling prior engagements in order to provide continuity of representation. I am very impressed with the quality of his work he is obviously a deeply experienced, caring and highly able professional – we were fortunate to have him on our team.'
I regular do in-house talks on mental health law, HR issues, mental capacity & equality law for healthcare clients. I have also run seminars on the treatment of children, especially regarding their mental and physical health.
In May 2016, I delivered a presentation on EU Health and Safety law at The National Autonomous University of Mexico.
Simon Lindsay's recent work includes a number of complex matters for NHS trusts. His skills span Mental Health Act and human rights issues, among other areas.
