clinical negligence


First rate healthcare is the primary objective for all health providers. But if patients are dissatisfied and claims are brought, this can be a source of great stress for everyone involved. We understand the challenges you face and we provide pragmatic solutions, handling claims quickly, efficiently and sensitively and collating evidence to help you reduce risk.

what we do...

  • One of the largest dedicated clinical negligence teams in the UK including 11 partners representing healthcare providers across the UK.

  • Members of the NHS Litigation Authority and Medical Protection Society panels as well as acting for insurers of private healthcare providers.

  • We have extensive experience of claims, from large obstetric brain damage and shoulder dystocia to claims against prison healthcare providers.

  • Advising NHS clients in relation to multi-million pound settlements by way of Periodical Payment Orders (PPOs).

  • Joint and several defendant proceedings.

  • Review and “lessons learned” in regards to claims, inquests and complaints.

  • Pioneering solutions – we devised a unique process for handling hundreds of claims from children who had been inappropriately medicated using a panel of experts who meet with the parents to decide on all the issues without going to court.

  • Known for a tenacious and thorough approach to investigations on complex cases, resulting in favourable liability settlements on cerebral palsy cases saving the NHS millions of pounds.
