Helen is a senior associate in our clinical negligence team. Her in-house training with the NHS in Wales gave her the benefit of insider knowledge on how hospitals deal with claims made against them. She qualified in 2008 and joined Penningtons Manches in 2011.
She has dealt with a broad range of clinical negligence claims but has a special interest in cardiac claims, bowel injuries, claims surrounding the care of the elderly, and those arising out of mismanagement of pregnancy and labour. She also has an interest in inquest work.
Helen deals with claims both in the county and High Court, acting on behalf of the individual. She has been quoted in the press on issues surrounding clinical negligence claims - particularly those arising from the poor supervision of junior doctors.
