Medical Negligence


Senior Medical Negligence Lawyer



Gemma, an experienced medical negligence lawyer based in Manchester, is an integral part of Thompsons’ national clinical negligence team. Her expertise encompasses a diverse range of medical negligence claims, including brain injuries, delayed stroke diagnosis, loss of life claims, orthopaedic cases, surgical and gynaecological negligence, as well as delayed cancer diagnosis.

Gemma understands the profound sense of betrayal many patients experience when they suffer injuries due to medical negligence, particularly from professionals entrusted with their care. As a solicitor, she believes her role is listening to clients and understanding their objectives in pursuing a claim. By investing time in fostering strong relationships with clients, Gemma is better equipped to guide them towards a favourable resolution.

Gemma qualified as a solicitor in September 2015. Before this, she was a paralegal in a medical negligence team for almost three years. A paralegal is trained in subsidiary legal matters, but is not fully qualified as a lawyer; she, therefore, gained valuable experience in fighting for clients prior to qualifying.


Gemma was recently awarded a distinction in a master’s degree in healthcare, ethics and law from the University of Manchester. She took the course over two years whilst working at Thompsons.


In her spare time, Gemma is an amateur seamstress and likes to add to her wardrobe with self-made items.
