Legal Services at GOSH
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.
The Legal Team manages a wide range of legal matters for the Trust. These include:
All clinical/non-clinical claims brought against the Trust;
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.
