Nurses Cleared of Wilful Neglect at Princess of Wales Hospital

Jade Pugh and Claire Cahill, two hospital nurses who worked on the stroke ward of the Princess of Wales Hospital, Bridgend were accused of wilfully neglecting vulnerable patients in their care. Jade Pugh and Claire Cahill were accused of fabricating medical records and failing to check blood glucose levels of patients. They both denied all of the charges against them.


Ms. Brimelow QC led the legal arguments in a voire dire which demonstrated that reliance could not be placed upon the electronic data. After the ruling from HHJ Crowther QC, the prosecution offered no evidence against both nurses and not guilty verdicts were returned.


Kirsty Brimelow QC was leading Stephen Donnelly, instructed by Graham Evans & Partners solicitors.


Further background to the case can be found on the BBC, ITV and Wales online.
