Clinical Negligence

Giles Colin has a wide ranging practice covering a number of areas of law, but he is best known for his work in the fields of clinical negligence, discipline and regulation, personal injury and inquests (principally in healthcare matters appearing regularly on behalf of the Ambulance Service, PCT and Hospital Trusts, as well as representing the interests of doctors). Giles has been instructed directly by the General Medical Council to cross examine vulnerable witnesses where the doctor does not have legal representation.
