Experience

Profile of Gill Walker, independent provider of Expert Witness Quantum reports for adults, young people and children, in relation to Care and Case Management, compliant with Part 35 Civil Procedures Rules.

I have a strong nursing and rehabilitation background since graduating with a Bachelor in Nursing in 1980 and becoming a Registered General Nurse, Health Visitor and District Nurse. Later I pursued post graduate studies and became a Registered Nurse Teacher, a Nurse Prescriber and held varied positions such as Specialist Community Nurse for older people, Clinical Nurse Specialist in Stroke Rehabilitation and Principal Lecturer in Nursing at the University of South Wales.

I have produced Expert Witness opinion on Care and Case Management costs since 2009 for claimants and defendants living in the UK, France and India. I produce detailed, sound, well evidenced reports with recommendations and costings which are realistic and in line with prevailing rates for the particular locality. I am able to do this because of the breadth and depth of my nursing experience and drawing on my up to date knowledge of care costs from working as a Consultant Case Manager from 2009 to date. I hold the Cardiff University Bond Solon Expert Witness Certificate.

As a Case Manager I have always had a varied case load encompassing clients across the lifespan from infancy to advanced old age. My clients have included adults with varying levels of physical, psychiatric and neurological disabilities as well as children with cerebral palsy resulting in multiple profound physical and learning difficulties through to children with conditions such as Severe Short Bowel Syndrome or following Solid Organ Transplant.

I speak French and I have a good knowledge of the French Health and Social Care system as I live between France and the U.K to service clients I have in France, England and Wales. I have also had clients in Portugal, Switzerland, Poland, Spain and Gibraltar.

My combination of Expert Witness work and Case Management in an excellent mix. This ensures my Expert Witness opinion is based on up-to-date professional experience of the client groups concerned and ‘real world’ knowledge of the commercial costs of care, therapies and gratuitous care rates.With bases in France and England I accept instructions from Claimant’s and defendant’s solicitors for Expert Witness Quantum reports for clients in the UK, EU and worldwide.
