‘I underwent a routine operation to remove my gallbladder – unfortunately after major complications I spent six months in hospital. This included ten weeks in an induced coma and twelve weeks in our local PDRU unit where I required intensive physiotherapy to build my strength, learn to do small tasks for myself and learn to walk again. As a family we wrote to the local Health Board to complain about the outcome of the operation and the immediate aftercare I received - We felt let down by the outcome of the meeting and therefore felt the need to take our complaint further. A local solicitors put us in touch with Elizabeth and her team – from the start of our engagement we felt a weight had been lifted from our shoulders. As a family this was the first time we had to use the legal system and felt daunted by everything in front of us – The legal process was explained to us in comprehensible way, with Elizabeth on hand to answer any questions we had and guiding myself and my family every step of the way. We met with the legal team in Glasgow, attended by Elizabeth and her Advocate, we were taken through the process going forward and the next steps were explained in detail. A follow up meeting afforded us the opportunity to meet with the Senior Advocate – at no time did we feel overwhelmed by this as once again we were expertly guided by Elizabeth and her team. It was a long process with a favourable outcome for us at the end in no small part due to Elizabeth’s professionalism, support and guidance’.
