Lawyer earns place on national panel

An award-winning Shropshire clinical negligence lawyer has earned a prestigious role on a national panel of specialists who deal with medical accident cases.

Beth Heath is head of the clinical negligence team at Lanyon Bowdler and also a partner at the firm. She has established an impressive record specialising in high value, complex cases including birth injuries, maternal deaths and delay in diagnosis.

Beth, who was named the 2022 Clinical Negligence Lawyer of the Year, has now been further recognised as one of the leading lawyers in her field by being appointed to the specialist legal panel of Action Against Medical Accidents (AvMA).

AvMA is a patient-focused charity which helps people who have suffered injury following avoidable medical accidents or errors. The charity looks for solicitors who not only have the highest levels of expertise and experience, but also who are prepared to go the extra mile for their clients.

Beth said: “I am delighted to have been appointed to the specialist panel. AvMA is an amazing charity committed to helping people and their loved ones during what is likely to be the most difficult time of their lives.

“The charity supports individuals whose lives are often totally devastated by failings and errors, helping them through the process of getting their lives back on track.”

Beth joins fellow clinical negligence specialists Lucy Small and Emma Broomfield on the AvMA panel.
