I am passionate about continually challenging poor standards of maternity training and care, and ensuring lessons are learned to make maternity wards as safe as they possibly can be for mothers and babies.
Get to Know Theresa
Theresa has been a registered midwife since 2009 and has worked in NHS hospitals and in the community. In her role at Hudgell Solicitors, she uses her extensive knowledge to assist our legal teams, producing advisory reports for potential medical negligence claims.
With her extensive clinical and maternity knowledge, Theresa supports colleagues with birth injury, still birth and wrongful birth related claims as well as cerebral palsy and other cases of child medical negligence.
In recent times Theresa has worked as Lead Clinical Governance and Risk Manager within the NHS and on secondment to the Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch, which conducts independent investigations of serious incidents, making recommendations aimed at improving healthcare systems and processes in order to reduce risk and improve standards.
Theresa has also undertaken life and death reviews on behalf of the NHS to identify gaps in care for people with learning disabilities.
When I joined Hudgell Solicitors I was pleased to see the firm works closely with the national mother and baby charity Baby Lifeline, as I have delivered their training courses on Childbirth Emergencies in the community to paramedics.
