    Often when patients are unhappy with the treatment they have received from an NHS hospital they will make a formal complaint to the Trust. Formal complaints are a useful way of getting essential information about the treatment a patient has received and may sometimes result in that Trust apologising to the aggrieved patient.

James Cahan's approach was exemplary, he was both approachable and understanding at all times.  

Client

As mentioned, I was very impressed at the start! As the case grew and went on, I felt completely safe, and trusted Jonathan to act in my best interests, though everything was always run by me before going ahead with anything, without the experience and knowledge.

Client

They worked as hard as possible to get me a result that I did not think I would end up with. The communication with my lawyer and his staff was excellent, and I felt at ease discussing such private matters with my lawyer, which is a rarity for me as I am a very private person.

Client

Oliver was very helpful and friendly, and settled the case within a short space of time.

Client

Kept me up to date with all stages of the claim. Fees were good, and Oliver was very helpful and friendly.

Client

I would like to thank Jenny and her team for all their hard work and efforts during what has been a very traumatic 3 years.  Throughout this period, Jenny has been on hand with reassurance and advice.  At the same time, she assembled an excellent team of experts, which enabled me to reach a successful conclusion.

Client

I am so grateful to TS&P for all their work and help with my mother's case; it was a very complicated and time-consuming case.
