Ben Collins QC and Tara O’Halloran feature in the AvMA Newsletter – April 2019


Ben Collins QC and Tara O’Halloran have articles that feature in the April edition of the AvMA Lawyers Service Newsletter, that was published on 3rd April 2019.

Despite the challenges of practising in healthcare law, the resilience, commitment and dedication claimant clinical negligence lawyers show in doing their best for their clients continues. Andrew Bentham at McMillan Williams and Ben Collins QC at Old Square Chambers case of Asante v Guy’s & St Thomas’ Hospital NHS Foundation Trust [2018] EWHC 2578 (QB), is a good example of what can be achieved even when the odds appear to be stacked against the claimant. (Page 7).

Tara O’Halloran at Old Square Chambers looks at the recent amendments to The Human Medicine (Amendment) Regulations 2019 which since 9th February 2019 allows pharmacists to alter the strength, quantity or type of drug without first obtaining permission from the prescriber; she also comments on the Kennedy -v- Frankel case (Page 19).
