In terms of her claims expertise, it includes advising on complex and high-value clinical negligence claims spanning the medical specialities. She has done a particularly significant number of brain injury and spinal surgery cases as well as orthopaedic, plastic surgery, ophthalmology, neurology and neurosurgery claims, brought against surgeons and physicians working both in the NHS and in their private capacity. She has vast experience of defending GPs and out-of-hours organisations, as well as care homes, hospital groups and agencies working in these environments.

In her regulatory work, Tracy defends doctors, dentists and other healthcare practitioners whose registration is called into question by the General Medical Council (GMC) and other healthcare regulatory bodies (GDC, NMC, GOC, HCPC). Practitioners also turn to Tracy for representation in independent inquiries, including serious untoward incident inquiries and complex inquests, including deaths in custody. Tracy has defended many practitioners in fitness-to-practise hearings before their regulators as well as dealing with appeals arising from those proceedings.

Tracy is well regarded when it comes to healthcare litigation and often represents doctors in Maintaining High Professional Standards (MHPS) NHS disciplinary proceedings and private hospital investigations. She has particular expertise in representing practitioners who face proceedings, often consecutively, in numerous different arenas (criminal, inquest, regulatory, disciplinary and claims).

Judicial Review challenges are also a specialism of Tracy’s. She advises Medical Royal Colleges and professional bodies. She has been involved in a prominent case for the General Optical Council, including the prosecution of the remitted hearing. She has defended a number of different regulators in PSA and Judicial Review challenges.

In addition to the above, Tracy also acts for insurers, defence organisations and private clients and is fluent in both French and English, and speaks German.

  • Tracy was open and honest from the beginning and never made any predictions or promises. I have since recommended Tracy personally to many colleagues and the hospital management. I consider myself to have been incredibly fortunate to have had such a professional, knowledgeable, articulate and compassionate lawyer.
