Success in these cases requires not only a knowledge of the law but also a deep understanding of the medical issues, which is why our department is led by a former consultant cardiologist, Dr David Thomas, who specialises in heart-related matters.
Joanna Lewis has dealt with complex dental negligence cases as well as misdiagnosis, surgical errors and birth complications. Lauren Seager has experience with complex cases involving consent issues, missed diagnosis and delay in treatment.
Members of the department regularly work in courts all over England and Wales.
