Stafford Hospital Deaths

Following the publication of the Francis report into serious care failings at the Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust, a multi-agency review has been launched to establish whether any criminal offences were committed. Up to 300 of the deaths at Stafford Hospital are under investigation by the police, Crown Prosecution Service, the coroner’s office, the health and safety executive, the Care Quality Commission, the General Medical Council and the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

We act on behalf of clients who may be the subject of this investigation. Cases of this nature are often long and complex and may result in serious charges being brought. Inevitably any trial before the crown court will attract considerable publicity and last for many months.


It is essential that those the subject of such enquiry have expert legal representation such as we provide to ensure that the such prosecutions do not result in a miscarriage of justice.

This firm is repeatedly asked to assist clients who have already instructed Solicitors.  We are used to dealing with such enquiries and advising as to the transfer of a case from previous Solicitors to this practice.  It is important to those the subject of an investigation or prosecution, that they are confident in the Solicitors that they instruct and that they consider those that act for them are doing everything they possibly can to assist.
