I work on a wide range of clinical negligence cases including claims against GPs, hospitals, pharmacists, dentists and opticians. These have included delayed diagnosis and referral, inappropriate treatment and surgical errors in many areas of medicine including orthopaedics, general surgery, emergency medicine and cancer. I also work closely with senior litigators on cerebral palsy and maximum severity brain injury cases. I have a particular interest in gynaecology.
I obtained my law degree and a Medical Law Masters whilst employed in the pharmaceutical industry, trained at Barlow Robbins and worked for several other law firms before returning to the firm in October 2013. I am also an accredited APIL litigator.
Deborah Powlesland's strengths are "attention to detail and identifying the right experts" in the fields of gynaecology and obstetrics.
