Inquests and regulatory

We understand that inquests can be very difficult for individuals and organisations, our assistance throughout the process helps to ensure you are properly prepared and the risks of a negative conclusion are minimised. At the same time we will advise on how the findings at an inquest may link through to associated proceedings such as a civil claim for damages so our clients are fully advised on all consequences of a Coroner’s conclusions.

Like inquests, regulatory processes are incredibly stressful experiences for any clinician or healthcare professional involved, and can lead to the loss of a professional’s livelihood and significant reputational damage. We offer guidance and assistance at all stages of an investigation, from an internal hospital disciplinary process through to a fitness practice hearing before the individual’s regulatory body.
