Birth Related Claims Account for Half of NHS Compensation Pay Outs

Unfortunately for some mothers their experience of the labour ward isn't always one full of joy. Complications, errors or injury can cause both physical and psychological pain long after their delivery.
Our Clinical Negligence team often work on cases of medical negligence for pregnancy or birth claims.
Our latest article explains more...

When things go wrong or mistakes occur in the NHS they can have tragic consequences on patients and their families. Perhaps the most heart-breaking are those that happen during child birth, leaving either mother or baby with avoidable injury, or in some tragic cases, death.

Breaking News: No Fault Divorce Approved

Some breaking news this morning as divorce law is given an overhaul:

Under current rules to obtain a divorce one party must prove adultery, unreasonable behaviour or desertion. Otherwise they will need to be separated, living apart for over 2 years (with consent of spouse) or over 5 years (without consent of spouse).

These new rules mean that many people who have just grown apart or want different things can now move on without having to play the 'blame game' or wait years to legally part ways.

After years of campaigning, media attention and a recent 12 week public consultation it has been announced this morning that the โ€˜no faultโ€™ divorce has been approved by Government and will be introduced โ€˜as soon as parliamentary time allowsโ€™.

No longer reserved for the rich or famous - pre-nuptial agreements (or pre-nups) are becoming more common place in the UK. They can help protect wealth / assets obtained prior to the relationship such as properties or family inheritance. A pre-nuptial agreement can make for a stronger relationship where both parties know where they stand should the marriage not stand the test of time.

Come and see us any lunchtime this week for a free 15 minute appointment with one of our specialist family lawyers.

Helping the NHS to Help Us: Going Vegan?

Many people have chosen to reduce the amount of meat or animal products in their diets for a number of reasons; including health, environmental and ethical.

Whatever your stance on the subject, it is worth considering what the impact of such diet changes could have on our over-stretched NHS, which sees millions of avoidable diet-related cases every day.

11 million deaths per year are caused by diet-related diseases.

Veganism has been one of the fastest moving โ€˜trendsโ€™ over the last few years. The topic has been hotly debated online, well covered in the press, endorsed by countless celebrities and has seen a surge of new plant-based food lines, businesses, shops and restaurants. The amount of people turning ...

Making Preparations for the New Year

If 2019 is the year you get married there will lots of excitement and planning. Sometimes the more practical preparations get overlooked.

You may want to explore the benefits of making a Pre-Nuptial Agreement with your partner. Not the most romantic of conversations, but a useful tool to protect yourself or any assets should the relationship break down in the future.

One of our Solicitors will be happy to run through the process - 01256 844888.

With the start of a New Year, it is a tradition to make resolutions and plans for the forthcoming year. If this is the year when you and your partner are going to get married, there are lots of exciting times ahead and sometimes the more practical preparations get overlooked.

How to Tell Your Children about Divorce: An Age Appropriate Guide

Breaking the news of separation or divorce to your children is not an easy conversation to have. Our Family Lawyers provide a few pointers that may help, along with a guide of how to approach this talk with different aged children...

We are supporting Resolution's 'Good Divorce Week' campaign and this year the theme is minimising the impact of conflict on children. This week we are offering a free 'Tea & Talk' every lunchtime at our offices (no need to book) and we are also sharing relevant articles online which we hope will help parents going through a separation.

For further information please get in touch with Julia in our friendly Family Team on 01256 305596.

For parents, telling your children that you are separating or getting divorced can be a rather upsetting and painful conversation. As adults you are likely to have been unhappy for some time or been on a journey through your separation, but for the children it may come as a complete surprise.

Coping with the loss of a loved one is hard enough, let alone with the added pressure of dealing with the paperwork and administration of their estate.

What You Need To Know About Civil Partnerships

Last week Teresa May announced that Civil Partnerships would be available to all couples in England and Wales, not just limited to same-sex relationships.

But what is the difference between a marriage and a civil partnership and is it worth considering if you live with your partner but are not intending to marry?

Laura Bell from our Family Team explains....

Following from the news in June that the Civil Partnership Act 2004 was deemed by the Supreme Court to be incompatible with human rights law, Teresa May has now announced last week that all couples in England and Wales will be able to choose to enter into a civil partnership rather than marriage.

Today is World Mental Health Day (10 October 2018) and a good opportunity to reflect on how you could help support your staff or colleagues who may be suffering from mental health issues in the workplace.

There are many resources out there to give you inspiration, such as appointing a 'mental health first aider' or organising 'coffee & chat' mornings. You could list helpful text services or websites on your staff intranet or simply review your policies to check that you are compliant with employment law.

Today's message is "It's OK to talk" so ensure that you have an open-door policy when it comes to staff being able discuss problems with management and consider training your managers if they are unsure on how to manage these issues.
