Nicola's Profile
 
Professional Discipline
Nicola has appeared as junior counsel in many of the leading High Court and Court of Appeal doctors disciplinary cases:
 
  • Dr Mattu v. University Hospitals of Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust [2011] EWHC 2068 - Nicola was junior counsel for Dr Mattu (led by John Hendy QC and Giles Powell). The case concerned the ability of the Trust to proceed to a disciplinary hearing in the absence of Dr Mattu, the characterisation of the charges against Dr Mattu as involving professional or personal conduct (the former attracting greater protection under Dr Mattu's contract of employment) and the application of Article 6 ECHR to the disciplinary proceedings.
  • A v. HTX [2012] EWHC 857 (QB)- Nicola was junior counsel for Health Trust X in its successful resistance of an application for a final injunction by Dr A who was seeking to prevent the trust from referring her to an ill health panel.
  • R (on the application of Puri) v. Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust [2011] EWHC 970 (Admin), [2011] IRLR 582 - Nicola was junior counsel (led by Giles Powell) for Mr Puri in his application for judicial review of the decision to dismiss him using a disciplinary panel consisting mainly of employees of the Trust and to permit his appeal panel to be similarly constituted. The case concerned the application of Article 6 ECHR to dismissals where a person's ability to practice their profession / professional reputation may be at stake. This case is currently being appealed to the Court of Appeal;
  • Dr Hussain v. Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust [2011] EWHC 1670 - Nicola was junior counsel (led by Giles Powell) for Dr Hussain in her breach of contract and Article 6 claims. The High Court held that the Trust had been in breach of Dr Hussain's contract of employment in respect of the level of her exclusion and its initial referral to a disciplinary hearing of charges that were not purely conduct charges.
  • Dr Lim v. Royal Wolverhampton Hospitals NHS Trust [2011] EWHC 2178 - Nicola was junior counsel for the Trust (led by Giles Powell). The case concerned the Trust's duty to refer Dr Lim to NCAS before commencing capability proceedings and the ability of the Trust to consider (unrelated) conduct charges.
