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 Wednesday 19th February 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.
