Notable Cases

  • Gulf View Medical Centre Limited (1) & Roopchand (2) v Tesheira (Trinidad and Tobago) [2022] UKPC 38

    Judicial Committee of the Privy Council

    Consideration of a number of issues pertaining to expert evidence, the range of opinion, CPR35 compliance etc. in the context of a fatal clinical negligence claim in Trinidad.

    In April 2004, Mr Tesheira, a former captain of the Trinidad football team, underwent a TURP procedure under the care of a Dr Goetz at Gulf View Medical Centre in San Fernando, Trinidad. Dr Roopchand was the anaesthetist. Unfortunately, Mr Tesheira developed heavy bleeding after the surgery and, despite the efforts of various doctors, died. The claim against Dr Goetz having been compromised, the action proceeded against the Medical Centre and Dr Roopchand. At the conclusion of the Claimant’s case, the Defendants, represented by Mary O’Rourke KC, argued that there was no case to answer by reason of the nature and strength of the evidence presented. The High Court rejected that argument and, the Defendants having been put to their election, entered judgment for TTD$18,034,772.33 (approximately £2.25M). The Court of Appeal overturned a number of findings of fact, but concluded that Dr Roopchand had been negligent and that the Medical Centre owed a Non-Delegable Duty to Mr Tesheira.

    Joined the case for the hearing before the Privy Council as second junior to Miss O’Rourke KC and David Boyle, assisting particularly with the drafting of the final Statement of Case which argued a number of points including the approach to the expert evidence and its quality, procedural unfairness, the effects of an admission in certain respects of the Claimant’s case, the Bolam test, and non-delegable duties under Woodland v Essex.

    Ultimately, the Court found that there were no novel points of law, and that the admission, made by previous solicitors in the initial Defence, meant that several of the arguments raised were not, in fact, open to the Appellant on this appeal, which was, accordingly, dismissed.
