• I am an Associate in the clinical risk team in our London office and I have specialised in medical defence litigation for 12 years advising NHS bodies and NHS Resolution.  I joined Bevan Brittan from Capsticks and I have developed a special interest in orthopaedic, neurological and obstetric cases.

    I endeavour to deal with cases expeditiously, sympathetically and providing support for the clinical staff. 

    Notable cases:

    Safia Deriche v Ealing Hospital NHS Trust (2003) – successful defence of wrongful birth claim

    John Wood v Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust (2009) – successful defence of knee replacement surge
