Kay Barnes

Partner, Medical Negligence Solicitor


Kay joined Simpson Millar in 2016, and before entering the legal profession, had worked as a nurse and midwife for 14 years. During her career as a nurse, Kay experienced first-hand many medical complications and obstetric emergencies typical of a busy maternity unit.

Her background gives her an invaluable insight allowing her to undertake a forensic analysis of medical records, and enables her to identify at an early stage the key issues in a medical injury case.

Before joining our firm, Kay had been the Head of Clinical and Medical Negligence claims at another leading law firm in Leeds.
