Posted on: 6 July 2017

Palliative care nursing expert, Jodie Brookes, gave evidence in the High Court - Grant v Secretary of State for Transport EWHC 1663(QB)

Jodie Brookes, our experienced Palliative Care Nurse, gave evidence in the High Court in May 2017.  Jodie was instructed by the Claimant.  Her evidence was quoted in the Judgement by Martin Chamberlain QC (sitting as a Deputy High Court Judge)

"The Claimant's evidence as to the value of the nursing care she provided to Mr Grant was given by Mrs Jodie Brookes.  She is a registered nurse.  The majority of her career has been spent managing care facilities in the private sector.  She specialises in palliative care and has considerable experience nursing patients with mesothelioma.  Mrs Brookes gave careful and impressive oral evidence.  She made concessions where appropriate, yet demonstrated that her conclusions were based on a careful review both of the medical notes and of what the Claimant had told her when she visited".
