NMC Defence Barristers have successfully negotiated a consensual panel determination for our client in a complex multi-handed case involving issues of poor clinical practise and failure to take action when safeguarding issues had been raised. 

Our client was delighted with the outcome and stated: 

“Catherine Stock represented me in an NMC Case with great excellence and expertise, showing great empathy, compassion and understanding. Everything ran with tranquillity and ended well” 

Catherine Stock, joint head of chambers said in relation to this case: “It is so important to consider the possibility of coming to an agreement with the NMC where errors have been made but where there are circumstances that can be taken into account. This way, if our negotiations are successful your case is dealt with quicker and without unnecessary stress and cost.” 

If you have issues at work come to us for advice and assistance. We can help. We can help you to write your statement and in preparing for your investigatory interview and disciplinary hearing, if necessary.
