James’ story: seeking justice following abuse in a sexual health clinic

Posted on 15 July 2020

In this podcast Alison Millar, a partner at Leigh Day specialising in abuse claims, explores the story of James, a former client who was sexually assaulted by a nurse at a sexual health clinic. James recalls his experiences of the NHS complaints process; the criminal justice system; and how the civil law helped.

Alison also speaks with Alan Robertson, an Independent Sexual Violence Advocate at Survivors UK, who talks about the particular issues faced by those who have been abused in healthcare settings and why we need more specialist support services.
