7BR (Chambers of Collingwood Thompson QC)

Position

Barrister practising in both general crime and civil law, with a special interest in cases involving medical issues. In civil she specialises in clinical negligence, personal injury, education and disciplinary work. In crime she prosecutes and defends in a variety of serious cases and is regularly led in murders and large multi-handed cases. She is a grade 4 prosecutor. The last seven months of 2009 reflected the dual nature of her practice, when she was counsel to the inquiry in a private inquiry into the management and practices of Night Nurse Practioners (NNPs) at Airedale NHS Trust during 2000-02, which concerned nurse prescribing and IV administration of opiates, following a stayed murder prosecution against a senior NNP. Her work required knowledge of both criminal proceedings and medical issues, and was greatly helped by her previous career as an Registered General Nurse in a busy London teaching hospital.
