Our genuine clinical negligence specialist solicitor
2020 has seen Denise Broomfield, our Medical Negligence solicitor and the head of our Medical Negligence team, re-accredited again by both of the country’s leading panels for specialist clinical negligence solicitors. (Clinical negligence is just another term for medical negligence. It means exactly the same thing.)

The Law Society re-appointed Denise, to their panel this year. According to the Law Society, this particular scheme is set to show that any member of the Clinical Negligence (an alternative term for medical negligence) panel is equipped with a high level of knowledge and experience in Medical Negligence claims.
Denise in particular, is one of just five specialist medical solicitors in Wiltshire with panel membership. The scheme is one of the most demanding run by the Law Society. And as a result there are only just over 300 solicitors specializing in Medical Negligence in England and Wales (out of over 150,000), who are panel members. And only around 180 solicitors are member of both the Law Society and AVMA panels.
According to the Law Society itself, the scheme is intended to provide“ recognition for your excellence “ and ensures that any Clinical Negligence panel member has a high level of knowledge and experience in medical negligence claims. In particular, Denise is one of just five specialist medical negligence solicitors in Wiltshire with panel membership.
The AvMA Clinical Negligence Scheme
Denise has also been re-accredited to the AvMA specialist solicitors panel. Denise has been a member of the panel since 1996 when she was, for a time, the youngest solicitor in the country on the panel.
Action Against Medical Accidents (AvMA) is a UK based charity which was set up to offer confidential and free advice to anyone who may be a victim of medical negligence. They help support people at a time when they often feel isolated, hopeless, and overwhelmed. As well as support and advice, the charity can refer people on to approved, specialist medical negligence solicitors if they feel there may be chances of compensation. And as an organization, AvMA works to the highest standards and embraces ethical practices on inclusion and equality. AvMA is highly regarded for its long-standing campaigning work for patient safety and justice. National campaigns run by the organisation in recent years include the introduction of a Duty of Candor (Robbie’s Law) and assisting with the Staffordshire Hospital enquiry.
The charity works in close partnership with its select panel of highly specialist medical negligence solicitors who try to get the victims the compensation they are entitled to by working with the court system.
Over the years, AvMA has supported more than 100,000 people, and has also been instrumental in changing the entire way the UK’s legal system deals with claims for clinical negligence compensation. Here at Bonallack & Bishop, we are big fans of AvMA and the excellent work they do.
The importance of appointing a specialist clinical negligence solicitor
Compensation claims following medical errors are highly specialised and involve a particularly complex areas of law. What’s more, as well as having a thorough understanding of the law, your clinical negligence solicitor will also need a firm grasp of medicine. That’s why it’s so important that your solicitor is a genuine specialist.
Both the AvMA and Law Society highly specialist panels requires re-accreditation every three years, and so Denise is accredited with both until 2023. That reaccreditation process is a tough one. It’s certainly no formality. To stay on these panels, you have to prove to both organisations that you been regularly running a full range of medical negligence cases and have kept up-to-date with all the necessary training. So, by appointing a member of either panel you can be absolutely positive that there has been independent confirmation that you’re getting a genuine expert.
