Vicki Swanton


  • I am a partner and Business Stream Leader for BLM’s healthcare department.
  • I continue to assist customers with challenging cases whether they be high value litigants in person or multi party, managing reputational issues and controlling costs.
  • I work with medical defence organisations, NHS bodies and a broad range of leading insurer customers.
  • I have experience of the full range of issues facing those involved in defending medical malpractice, assisting them in predicting future risks, trends, and how protocols/training could reduce claim numbers and individual spend.
  • I have expertise in defending health professionals in front of their regulators including the GDC and GMC. I also appreciate the joined up thinking that is required following an adverse healthcare event and the need to consider how representation at an inquest could impact on an individual/organisation who is also implicated in a claim/inquiry/prosecution.
