In our 100th episode, Emma-Louise Fenelon talks to Neil Sheldon QC about how to help your expert stay out of trouble in clinical negligence cases. The episode considers the recent trend in trenchant judicial criticism of expert witnesses and discusses the following cases:
- ZZZ v Yeovil District Hospital NHS Foundation Trust  EWHC 1642
- Harris v Johnston  EWHC 3193
- Ruffell v Lovatt (2018) Unreported, Winchester County Court, 4 April
- Arksey v Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust  EWHC 1276 (QB)
The episode offers a number of lessons to be drawn from these cases and tips on avoiding the more egregious errors to which even experienced experts can be prone. For more on ZZZ v Yeovil District Hospital, see Gideon Barth’s article in the 1COR Quarterly Medical Review here.
