Our Medical & Clinical Negligence team are still open for business

In light of the Coronavirus situation our offices are now closed to the public, with most of our teams working from home. However we understand that there are still people who require help after potentially receiving care or treatment that falls below the appropriate standard. We would like you to know that we are still open for business and we are available to schedule telephone and video appointments in order to service our clients. If you would like to schedule a telephone or video chat appointment, please contact us on 0131 226 5151 or complete our online contact form. We can now also offer appointments within our offices if neccessary.
