I’ve been a professional regulation specialist for over forty years, with a particular focus on health and social care regulators. I’ve advised clients on the full range of regulation issues they’re likely to encounter, including allegations, advice, advocacy and handling appeals. As a former solicitor advocate with higher rights, I’ve appeared before the Master of the Rolls and the High Court on appeals, giving me a depth of practical experience to draw on when helping clients today. I’m also experienced in undertaking audits for clients and training committee members.
In the main we worked for health and social care regulators, but I was also appointed to the panel of lawyers set up by the SRA to act on their behalf in proceedings before the SDT. The work for all the regulator clients included investigation of allegations, advice, advocacy and handling appeals. As I had Higher Rights I was able to appear before the Master of the Rolls and the High Court on appeals. I also undertook audits for clients and training in relation to their Committee members.
