Capacity and consent - when to go to the Court of Protection?

Capacity and consent - when to go to the Court of Protection? 

Kennedys' healthcare team are delighted to be holding the seventh webinar of our 2020 annual healthcare seminar programme.

We will be joined by guest speaker: Katie Gollop QC, Barrister at Serjeants' Inn.

Katie took silk in 2016 and has a broadly based healthcare law practice. She is a highly experienced clinical negligence trial advocate, sought after by claimants and defendants, and has a public law practice involving challenges to healthcare decisions (e.g. provision of cannabis derived medicinal products, transplant waiting lists and travel abroad for life-sustaining treatment).

As to ethical work, many of Katie’s serious medical treatment cases in the Family Division and Court of Protection attract national news coverage and she represented GOSH in the Charlie Gard case. She represents families and healthcare providers at high profile inquests (for example the widow of one of the seven men murdered by Al-Qaeda terrorists at In Amenas and, currently, Spire at the inquests into former patients of Ian Paterson). Katie also she has significant public inquiry experience, now representing The Haemophilia Society at the Infected Blood Inquiry.

Katie is quick witted, down to earth, tireless and client focused. The directories have said she is “charming and deadly” as well as “an astonishing talent”. In 2019, she was appointed a Deputy High Court Judge.
