Heather Moore Associate Solicitor, Medical Negligence

Experience Profile

Heather is a medical negligence associate solicitor at Slater and Gordon Lawyers in London.

Upon joining in January 2017, Heather was solely dedicated to working towards the successful resolution of the Ian Paterson litigation. She worked as part of a team which successfully negotiated a global settlement of the litigation for £37 million. The settlement was approved by the Court so as to allow over 750 claimants and additional future claimants to finally achieve justice and receive compensation for their injuries. Heather continues to assist patients coming forward since the settlement of the litigation. This case has brought the issue of private sector regulation and patient safety to the forefront of legal debate, media investigation and reporting. A full public inquiry is being undertaken by the government as a result.   

Heather specialises in a range of clinical negligence cases and advises clients on issues including orthopaedic injuries, delay in diagnosis and surgical errors. She has also assisted with claims relating to birth injuries.
