TGC Clinical Negligence Newsletter – Second Issue, November 2021

16th November 2021

Welcome to the latest edition of the TGC Clinical Negligence Newsletter.

As (some measure of) normality has returned to life, there has been an explosion of reported cases of interest to clinical negligence and personal injury practitioners.
We are all now getting used to some of the benefits of ‘mixed working’ (actually being able to work whilst waiting for a delivery!), combined with the relief of seeing friends and colleagues once more. Recent experience suggests that there will continue to be a combination of ‘in-person’ and remote conferences, JSMs/mediations and hearings but it would appear that the courts are unlikely to have as many remote trials as envisaged.
Medical negligence cases arising during the pandemic are now starting to be presented, with an added layer of complexity due to the strained resources during the pandemic. They are likely to keep practitioners busy in the months and years to come.
Whilst the volume of work dials up, however, we can at least now holiday abroad again (or, of course, somewhere equally as exciting like Kent), albeit with the novel fear of catching the lurgy just before, or during, the trip almost equalling any excitement.

Fortunately, if you have to self-isolate, you can now console yourself with this bumper edition of articles, case summaries and case reviews. This edition also includes a review of some older cases (such as Reaney) to remind practitioners of their importance, as well as a study of how the seminal case of Montgomery is being (and has been) applied by the Courts.
