Last year, the healthcare team at PMP’s legal defence firm Clyde & Co successfully defended all of its trials.
Clyde & Co, who act on behalf of PMP policyholders in the event of claims, are justifiably proud of their track record defending medical professionals. During 2017, the healthcare team at Clyde & Co successfully defended all of the trials in which it was involved..
This year has also begun well for Clyde & Co. So far, the healthcare team has already had one successful trial and also been successful in an appeal from an earlier judgement.
Sam Holden, legal director at Clyde & Co, emphasised the importance of record-keeping in these recent trial successes: “The take-away message is to reiterate the need for clear contemporaneous notes and, where a claim comes in, a good statement focussing on the issues in dispute.”
We’ll look at record-keeping in a future edition of the PMP Post.
