We often receive calls from patients who have legal issues arising from their diagnosis.  These can range from problems with employers, disability issues, medical problems etc.   

Obviously, as a charity concerned with patient support, we want to be in a position to help when we can.  After discussing this in a meeting, one of our Trustees, Paula Bridge has offered to assist.  Paula will be at the offices of Melanoma UK on Monday 2 March from 10am until 2pm.  She will available to discuss any issues that are concerning patients and/or families.   Paula is dually qualified as a Barrister and Solicitor. She specialises in clinical negligence work, but has a range of knowledge in other areas and if she cannot assist personally, she will put you in touch with the appropriate person who can. 

If you would like to book a slot for her to call you, or arrange an online chat, please do let us know - email [email protected] or call 0808 171 2455    

This is a pilot scheme and if it proves to be helpful, we will arrange this every couple of months.
