A total of 26 patients have instructed our specialist medical negligence solicitors to investigate the care they received at Spire Leeds Hospital and Nuffield Health Hospitals Leeds. To date, we have recovered £100,000 in damages arising from the care of Mr Walsh. We encourage those affected by Mr Walsh’s care to contact us.

The 26 men and women all underwent shoulder or hand surgery performed by surgeon Michael Walsh. An investigation by Spire uncovered examples of Walsh harming patients by performing surgery on them unnecessarily or badly.

As we represent a large cohort of patients it gives us an advantage by being able to identify recurring themes identified as care of concern at an early stage.

Ami Law

Miss Ami Law, Solicitor in our medical negligence department is one of four lawyers in the team investigating cases concerning Mr Walsh’s care.  Having investigated the care provided by Mr Walsh to our client, Mr Joynson a full admission has now been secured.  It has been admitted that his shoulder surgery was not performed to an acceptable standard and with appropriate surgery, on the balance of probabilities, the majority of Mr Joynson’s symptoms would have resolved within 6 months of surgery. He would have avoided the need to undergo two additional procedures, a steroid injection and MR arthrograms.  Miss Law is now investigating quantum following which the parties will enter into negotiations in order to avoid the need for court proceedings.

Ami comments:

“It is extremely distressing for patients when they discover that the cause of their ongoing pain and restrictions in activities of daily living may have been caused by inappropriate or substandard surgery. It can affect their mental health and invade almost every facet of their life. It is important that such cases are investigated thoroughly and lessons are learnt. Patients do not want to have to litigate in order to seek redress for the harm and losses they have suffered, they would much rather have avoided their injuries in the first place.”
