Our clinical negligence barristers cover various claims involving; doctors, dentists, nurses and other health professionals. We are frequently instructed in the most demanding and highest value cases, including birth injury and other serious neurological injuries. We act both for patients and their families and for bodies such as the NHS Resolution and the medical defence organisations.
In the wider healthcare field, we represent families, professionals and other interested persons at coroner’s inquests. We advise patients, doctors, NHS Trusts and regulatory bodies on law and policy in this area, including; public law and human rights. We appear in the range of tribunals where healthcare issues can arise, including the Administrative Court and the Court of Protection. We act in disciplinary and criminal proceedings involving doctors and other healthcare professionals, as well as dealing with the associated contractual and employment disputes: see our section on Disciplinary & Regulatory work for further details.
Outer Temple Chambers is proud to have been ranked Set of The Year 2017 for Clinical Negligence and Personal Injury.
We provide specialist advice and advocacy to both claimants and defendants in all aspects of clinical negligence and in a wide range of other healthcare work.
We have wide experience of multi-party clinical negligence litigation, public inquiries, internal NHS reviews and other extra judicial investigations. Indeed, in the last two decades our barristers have regularly been instructed in the most important and complex as well as high profile cases in this field: from the Kennedy Inquiry into paediatric cardiac surgery in Bristol and the Shipman Inquiry, to more recently the Thompstone periodical payment indexation cases and the inquests into patient deaths at Gosport Hospital.
