Medical Law Briefing - April 2020

What a strange time we find ourselves in. As we are inundated with headlines and statistics daily, I can fully
see how this may be a difficult time to find focus.

But litigation rumbles on in the shadows of the coronavirus outbreak. As we all get to grips quickly with
remote working practices and mastering court hearings by video app, 1 Chancery Lane is here to help in any
way that it can. We are business as usual. Indeed, it has been a busy time for 1 Chancery Lane’s medical law
practitioners.

In this briefing we give you a round-up of some of the recent cases that 1 Chancery Lane’s barristers have
been involved in (Whittington Hospital NHS Trust v XX [2020] UKSC 14 in which Edward Faulks QC appeared
for the Appellant Hospital, Paul v Royal Wolverhampon NHS Hospital [2019] EWHC 2893 in which Laura
Johnson appeared for the Claimants and R (Lewis) v Senior Coroner [2020] EWHC 471 in which Julian Waters
appeared for the Claimant). Ella Davis also looks at the decision in ABC v St George’s Healthcare NHS Trust
[2020] EWHC 45.
