Health Advisory and Litigation

Position

A Senior Associate, Heather was one of our founder associates in Manchester.  She specialises in a wide range of healthcare advisory matters. Since qualification in 2008, litigation has been the main focus of her practice and the majority of her career has been directed to the defence of high value clinical negligence claims against independent providers, but also advising on their clinical governance issues and providing inquest advocacy.

Since joining Browne Jacobson in 2013, Heather has provided that specialist advice and support to both public (NHS England, NHS Acute Trusts, Mental Health Trusts, Ambulance Services, Clinical Commissioning Groups) and independent health sector organisations as well as individual healthcare practitioners.  More recently, her practice interest has expanded, to include Court of Protection, Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards and Mental Health Law. Very recently Heather impressed the team with the way she cut through a complex mental health matter concerning the interplay between the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and the Mental Health Act 1983 and the impact of recent Supreme Court decisions relating to this area.

Heather is a really versatile healthcare lawyer, which was of vital importance when she joined our then quite small team in 2013 and she continues to play her part as trusted advisor to our clients both directly and a really knowledgeable and friendly go-to for our trainees and others joining us who are new to the healthcare team and its specialist work.
