Significant increase in cases of Sepsis within the NHS

The BBC today reported the significant increase in cases of Sepsis within the NHS

There were nearly 16,000 deaths in the year ending April 2017 where Sepsis was listed as one of the major causes.

Who is entitled to know what’s in your Will?

We’re often asked who has a right to see a Will and know its contents. In general terms, a Will is a private document while the person who wrote it is alive, and as their solicitor we are required to keep out clients’ affairs strictly confidential. After their death, a Will remains private unless and until a Grant of Probate is issued.
