NMC Defence Barristers have secured another decision of no case to answer from NMC Case Examiners for issues relating to failure to escalate concerns about a patient.

We worked with the nurse on reflection and remediation and made successful legal submissions to the NMC which led to a no case to answer decision. 

The nurse gave the following testimonial:

“I would like to thank you very much for dealing with my case with the nursing and midwifery council.

I thought my registration would be terminated with the referral I got from the nursing and midwifery council. I decided to look for a barrister to deal with my case. A friend of mine recommended NMC Defence Barristers. Without any delay I contacted them and spoke to Catherine Stock one of their barristers. I explained all that had happened regarding my case to Catherine. Catherine went through all the stages of my appeal until there was no case to answer with NMC.

I found NMC Defence Barristers barristers well experienced, knowledgeable and professional in dealing with referrals to the NMC. 

Thank you.”
