ABOUT US: MAGGIE SARGENT
Maggie Sargent began her career as a Registered General Nurse, having trained at St Thomas’s Hospital, London – and over 30 years she has built considerable experience in providing expert evidence on the costs of caring for clients with acquired brain injury and physical handicaps. The cases she has covered include both personal injury and medical negligence claims.
She gained her in-depth knowledge in caring for patients in her role as Nursing Director for International Care Limited (a division of International Hospital Group Limited) and by working closely with the highly respected Winifred Smalley MBE of the British Nursing Association.
During her career, Maggie has published papers on many aspects of Brain Injury Case Management in the community. She also lectures at seminars across the country on costs of care both in the public and private sectors.
She has held a number of positions and directorships in this specialised field: Nursing Adviser on the advisory board for Headway National and a life member. Maggie is also an advanced member of BABICM for clients who have suffered traumatic brain injury and has been a director on the board of CMSUK.
Today, Maggie combines preparing expert witness reports while working as the director of a national care consultancy and case management company that offers case management services for clients with profound disability (www.ccmservices.co.uk).
