Clinical Negligence

Athena is regularly instructed to draft pleadings and attend hearings in a broad range of clinical negligence claims. She continues to develop this area of her practice including advising and acting in numerous cases on behalf of the NHS. Some of her recent cases have involved an alleged failure by an NHS trust to diagnose and treat appendicitis promptly; complications arising from steroid prescription, and the concept of de minimis harm. Athena is comfortable with complex expert evidence, including in relation to causation.
