In a case that sparked considerable media interest, Rowan Jenkins represented the family of Sacha Rumaner at the inquest into her death held in Brighton County Court in September 2011.

Miss Rumaner collapsed during a routine trip to the dentist following an anaphylactic reaction to chlorhexadine, a commonly used antiseptic mouthwash. The detailed Article 2 investigation into the cause of death whilst in the care of the Health Authority addressed failures by dental staff to identify and treat obvious symptoms and by the ambulance service, which initially depatched insufficiently qualified staff. Three Rule 43 reports were sent by the coroner aimed at preventing similar failings in the future.
