In April 2010, Susie Elliott Solicitor addressed more than 100 delegates at a Conference organised by the charity Actions against Medical Accidents (AVMA) which campaigns for patient justice and safety. This Conference was concerned with our ongoing campaign for openness and honesty on the part of healthcare practitioners, after the occurrence of an adverse event. Other speakers included victims of medical negligence, Jim Reilly of Patient Focus, Hon. Justice William McKechnie, Judge of the High Court, Dr. Brian Farrell, Dublin City Coronor and Dr. Alais Quinlan of the State Claims Agency.
Susie subsequently appeared on TV3's Ireland am in relation to these issues with her client, Clodagh Brett, whose daughter suffered severe brain damage as a result of medical negligence which was contested by the HSE for 5½ years before liability was ultimately admitted.
