Death of 17 year old
A high profile inquest involving the death of a 17 year old boy to sepsis whose condition failed to be identified by multiple pre-hospital medical care providers. Media attention was significant and scrutiny focused on the ambulance trust and county health trust whom we represented.
Medical management of labour
A high profile prolapse baby inquest in which considerable attention was placed on the medical management of the labour; multiple hospital witnesses were called to give evidence and high volumes of documentation were disclosed. All PFD matters were successfully addressed and pre-empted. The verdict was one of natural causes and critical comments via summing up by the coroner were minimised.
Attempted suicide case
An inquest involving an attempted suicide case which involved failure to reach the deceased in a timely manner by the ambulance crew. PFD and neglect rider were avoided through extensive pre-emptive measures by the NHS Trust.
Elderly lady in care
An inquest involving an elderly lady in care who suffered injuries, haemorrhage and subsequent death after being dropped from a hoist by carers. The policies and procedures of the care provider were scrutinised in detail but we successfully avoided Prevention of Future Death (PFD) letter and minimised media attention.
