You have probably seen the story of Joanne Roche on our website? Jo is one of our previous clients and features in our marketing campaigns.  You may have asked yourself why she does it?

You have probably seen the story of Joanne Roche on our website? Jo is one of our previous clients and features in our marketing campaigns.  You may have asked yourself why she does it?

Do we pay her? No.

Is there anything in it for her? Again, no.

But if you have also seen the latest news on the surgeon who caused all of Jo’s problems you will start to put together a picture of why she is happy to tell the world how good we are at our job!

The latest on the extended suspension of Nayef El-Barghouty can be read on the BBC website amongst others.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-york-north-yorkshire-19047562

The BBC report on this surgeon’s appearance in front to the General Medical Council for a second time (July 2012) reported:

“The year-long suspension of a North Yorkshire surgeon who put patients at “unwarranted risk of harm” has been extended by a further four months. Nayef El-Barghouty was suspended from practising by the General Medical Council (GMC) in July 2011, finding him guilty of misconduct and dishonesty. The GMC heard one of his patients bled to death after a series of botched operations at Scarborough Hospital. A panel imposed the extension while considering if he was fit to practise.”

This surgeon operated on Jo in 2008 and his negligence caused her to have a permanent tracheostomy in place.

As well as securing Jo compensation for the negligence she suffered we also helped her to present a complaint about Mr El-Barghouty with the General Medical Council. A hearing that took place by the GMC panel on 22nd July 2011 decided that Mr El-Barghouty should be suspended immediately from the medical register so that he could not practise for 12 months.

One of our solicitors worked with Jo on the GMC hearing at no cost to her. We supported her complaint free of charge because we understand that for many of our clients the compensation they receive is just a small part of the healing process. Often much more important is trying to ensure that the neglect they experience is not inflicted on others. What many of our clients want is justice.

So, why does Jo recommend us? Because she thinks we are decent folks who are on her side, that’s why.

Couldn’t fault Hudgell Solicitors. They were professional, pleasant informative and helpful and got a result which was better than I had ever expected. When Becci left the practice and Alex took over my claim it was a seamless change over, indicating a personel strength in depth. Thank you.
