Becky heads up one of the two teams specialising in clinical negligence work and has over 20 years’ experience in this specialist area. Becky chose to specialise in this area of the law shortly after she qualified as a solicitor in 1991. Over the years, she has helped many individuals and families of those affected by the standard of care they received to the successful conclusion of their claims.

Becky joined Price Slater Gawne in 2014, having previously worked at another niche clinical negligence practice in Cheshire, where she was instrumental in securing a legal aid franchise for the firm.

Becky has a particular interest in claims relating to spinal surgery, birth injuries, and those involving a delay in diagnosis, or a surgical error. Becky enjoys taking a forensic approach to her cases and has been described by one leading barrister in Manchester as a solicitor who “leaves no stone unturned”.

Within the last few years Becky has brought successful cases for clients whose claims involved the following, often including physical and psychological injuries:


  • Delay in diagnosing and treating Cauda Equina syndrome
  • Failure to treat eye infections leading to reduced vision or blindness in the eye
  • Delay in diagnosing a chest infection leading to hypoxia causing cognitive impairment.
  • Excessive Uro -Gynaecological surgery leading to urinary, bowel and psychological problems.

She is currently representing several clients each with claims valued at in excess of one million pounds.

Outside of work Becky enjoys walks with the family dog, reading and catching up with friends and family.

Kind words
“The solicitors dealt with my claim in a professional way. I was asked in a sensitive way about my experience and they approached the claim in a sensitive manner. My claim was resolved with the help of Becky and I even got a letter of apology from the hospital trust.”
