The Clinical Negligence & Healthcare Team at Goldsmith Chambers comprises accomplished and committed barristers, some with practical and specialist clinical experience also able to draw on wide experience of proceedings arising from medical ethics and regulatory matters, clinical negligence and accidents to Health and Safety legislation, as well as clinical and emergency response issues.
Our members frequently advise on matters and appear in complex and controversial healthcare cases. They also advise and represent healthcare professionals in regulatory and disciplinary matters.
By our representations of the past we have ensured thorough examination of a number of issues, including those arising from the involvement of health or social services, failures of care, medical and dental negligence, individual and systemic neglect and criminal conduct in healthcare.
