John Pollitt


John is a Partner in our specialist Medical Negligence team. He has practiced clinical negligence since 1990 and successfully fought and won many complex multimillion pound cases through to smaller, but equally important, claims. 

He believes strongly that his clients are entitled to fair compensation, but also a proper explanation for adverse medical events. In appropriate cases, compensation will be payable and those clients are entitled to a sense of justice and some reassurance that lessons will be learned.

John is a member of the Referral Panel of Action Against Medical Accidents (AVMA).

John has long had a vocation to assert the rights of the individual against the State and big organisations. He is also driven to help improve local healthcare services (not least because he and his family all access them). He believes that by asserting valid clinical negligence claims, not only do his clients obtain entitlement to compensation and justice, but healthcare services also improve.

In his spare time he enjoys running, having taken part in several marathons. John attends Springhead Congregational Church where he is a Deacon. He is the weakest link in an otherwise competent rock band called the Receeders and also enjoys playing football, golf and squash.
