In March, as part of the Ropewalk Chambers’ Spring Webinar series, Philip Turton and Katie McFarlane reviewed the law relating to secondary victims in light of the decisions in Paul v The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust [2020] PIQR P19 and Polmear v Royal Cornwall Hospital NHS Trust [2021] EWHC 196 (QB). The webinar can be viewed here.

Philip and Katie’s comprehensive notes of the webinar are available on request from Chambers – please email [email protected] if you would like a copy.

The two appeals have now been consolidated and are listed to be heard over 23 and 24 June 2021. Philip and Katie will update the position once the judgments of the Court of Appeal have been handed down.
