Legal Services at GOSH

The Legal Team manages a wide range of legal matters for the Trust. These include:

  • All clinical/non-clinical claims brought against the Trust;

  • Inquests;

  • Child Protection proceedings involving Trust witnesses;

  • Criminal investigations involving Trust witnesses;

  • Medical treatment cases via High Court applications; and

  • Medical records and statement requests from Solicitors.

 
The Legal Team also provides an advisory service to clinicians as well as providing training and bespoke presentations on a wide variety of issues.
 
 
For clarity, the Legal Team cannot provide legal advice to Trust staff on personal (non-Trust related) matters and similarly cannot provide legal advice to patients/parents who should seek advice from their local CAB or law firm.
 
 
The team can be contacted via the Hospital Switchboard.
