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

At Attwaters Jameson Hill we are committed to helping people who have contracted sepsis due to negligent treatment or the negligent failure to treat clients who have suffered infections.

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.
