Amelia leads on the clinical risk management support we provide to NHS Resolution, NHS trusts and our other health clients. With many years’ experience as a solicitor resolving clinical negligence claims, Amelia works in close partnership with clients to identify and share learning from incidents, complaints, claims and inquests, helping to improve patient safety and also, hopefully, reduce litigation.
Amelia’s work includes undertaking thematic analyses of data from a variety of sources to highlight and examine specific trends and inform quality improvement work. Wherever possible, Amelia shares key learning more widely across organisations and where appropriate, connects organisations with similar challenges to share knowledge and develop solutions.
Amelia also provides advice on writing incident investigation reports and regularly provides training to clients on topics including supported decision making and duty of candour.
