Medical Negligence

I am comfortable assessing the quality and standard of care in the Emergency Department by applying a combination of common sense, vast experience and the relevant guidelines whether local or national.

I am familiar with Bolam and Bolitho principles.

I keep up to date at conferences and online through the likes of Bond Solon and various Expert Witness updates. 

I am comfortable giving evidence in court, having been an expert witness on dozens of occasions in the Coroners, Magistrates, High courts and the Court of Appeal.
