I have lectured widely on issues ranging from human rights act claims, cosmetic surgery, delay in diagnosing cancer and quantum in serious injury claims, including at the annual AvMA and APIL clinical negligence conferences. My articles have appeared in the Journal of Personal Injury Law, the Solicitors Journal, and other publications. For several years I acted as a Legal Assessor to the General Medical Council's Fitness to Practice Panels. I became a Recorder in 2010 and I sit as a panel chair for the Bar Adjudication and Tribunal Service.
Chambers UK Guide to the Bar 2017:
Band 1 for Clinical Negligence
This blog began in June 2012 and this site has now had over 195,000 visits. I have used it to publish a series of posts on the difficult legal issues concerning delay in diagnosis of cancer litigation, as well as occasional pieces on clinical negligence matters and litigation in general.
From 2014-16 I used the blog to try to raise awareness of the deficiencies of the Medical Innovation Bill aka the Saatchi Bill. Activity generated through the blog has resulted in two long articles in the Journal of Personal Injury Law, a letter published in The Times, and a letter, along with others, in the British Medical Journal and an invitation to the House of Commons to discuss the subsequent Access to Medical Treatments (Innovation) Bill with Chris Heaton-Harris MP. Extracts from the blog have been quoted (but not accredited!) in the House of Lords. I debated the Bill with Nick Ross, Sir Michael Rawlins and Daniel Greenberg at King's College London on 4 March 2015.
Here is a link to a piece I wrote for Legal Cheek on what I have learned from my experiences at the Bar.
