Testimonials about Lawyers at Nurses Defence Service

The lawyers at Nurses Defence Service are specially trained to represent nurses in NMC and other proceedings. Here is what some of our nurse clients have had to say about our lawyers:-


Health Committee Hearing at the Nursing and Midwifery Council

Nurse Ms C wrote: ‘ When a referral letter arrived from the NMC I felt my world had ended. The nightmare went on for over a year, and was one of the worst periods of my life. I did my research and Lee Gledhill seemed one of the most experienced in this area. He really did deliver too, without him I’m not sure what the outcome would’ve been, but I’m adamant not as good as I got with Lee. A skilled and confident lawyer, he’s a must if you find yourself facing a hearing.’



Fitness to Practise Hearing, Conduct and Competence Committee at the Nursing and Midwifery Council

Nurse Mr P wrote: I would like start by thanking Mr Gledhill for his help and assistance in getting me through my tough and daunting time while I was charged with misconduct by the NMC. To have charges put against you by your governing body is in itself a most scary and frightening experience; to potentially have ones career and livelihood taken away is an unforgettable experience that any person should never be put through. I can honestly say that Mr Gledhill made the difference to the outcome of my case. His forthright nature and his verbal skills are second to none. His knowledge of the law particularly nursing law and case law is impressive and so outstanding that once he is at your side you start to get the feeling that you have the right person at your side. I would have no hesitation in promoting Mr Gledhill at any time as he is an astute man in all aspects of legal knowledge within the nursing profession and he has been a saviour in my continuance of my nursing practice, when at one stage I felt I may have been at a dead end.’

Fitness to Practise (Consensual Panel Disposal), Conduct and Competence Committee at the NMC

Nurse Mr W wrote: ‘When I encountered problems with my professional regulator, I was shocked at how hard it would hit me. I would feel physically unwell every time I looked at the documentation and I had no idea as to how to even start to formulate a response. I contacted Mr. Gledhill who, with great patience and understanding, guided me through the process which took almost a year. I have Mr. Gledhill to thank both for the positive final outcome and for the help he gave me to understand how to practise more confidently in today’s modern profession.’


Review of Sanction Order – Hearing of Conduct and Competence Committee at the Nursing and Midwifery Council

Nurse Ms J wrote: Thank you very much for your help with my case and the outstanding work you did for me. Without your guidance and knowledge I don’t think I would have had a positive outcome, for which I am very grateful. I will always refer to your firm if the need ever arises. Once again my heartfelt thanks and appreciation.

Nurse Ms H wrote:Oh gosh, where to begin….. Faced with what was a terrible situation I turned to Mr Gledhill and his team for support.  From the very start, he guided and supported me through what became a long and arduous process.  Utterly professional and thanks to his previous experience as a registered nurse along with his colleague a former midwife and nurse, Penny Maudsley, they were able to provide a very personal understanding of the situation and defend me using their knowledge of the law combined with clinical experience.



NMC Cases

Nurse Ms N wrote: ‘I have engaged wirh Mr Stephen Page on two seperate issues. His work is of a high standard. He is open and honest and has a vast knowledge of the Nursing amd Midwifery Council. He is realistic in his views and accurate on opinions of outcomes.Mr Page was reliable he would contact when agreed and do what he said he would. In the best meaning possible I hope I do not need his service again but if I do I would ask for Mr Page personally and would not hesitate to recommend him and Nurses Defence Service to others.’
