  • She represents healthcare professionals who face proceedings brought by their regulators. She represents such clients on appeal and in related proceedings in the criminal and coroner’s courts.
  • She also acts for a number of healthcare regulators and has considerable experience supervising and coordinating complex investigations (including a number of cases arising from the closure of the Winterbourne View Care Home).
  • She has an excellent track record in drafting successful written representations to case examiners on discontinuance of charges.

General Medical Council v P

Represented a doctor accused of misconduct in relation to behaviour in his private life, which had no bearing on his professional activities nor did it require proceedings in the public interest. Case closed with no action following submissions to the case examiners.

British Horseracing Authority v M

Represented a trainer accused of deliberately racing a horse which had been operated on to numb a foot permanently. Limited factual findings made against the trainer leading to an unusually short period of disqualification.

General Medical Council v O

Successfully appealed the GMC’s decision to refused registration of a foreign surgeon suspected of falsifying documents in support of his application.

General Dental Council v P

Represented a dentist accused of dishonesty and clinical failings. Dishonesty charges dismissed; Panel found no misconduct in relation to the remaining charges.
