We are proud to announce that Royds Withy King have joined the legal panel of the the national charity Group B Strep Support. We will work in partnership with the charity to raise greater awareness of group B strep and to provide advice and support to families whose babies may have been affected by it.

Kerstin Kubiak, partner in our Medical Negligence team who deals with cases where there has been a a failure to diagnose the group B strep (GBS) infection, said:

“Every parent’s key concern on the birth of their child is to see them healthy, well and protected. A serious illness suffered by a newborn baby is devastating for the whole family, particularly so when there are long-term consequences for the child. In some tragic cases a new life cannot be saved. It is heartbreaking to work for families who have lost a child or whose child has suffered a long-term neurological injury, knowing that a simple and relatively cheap test with appropriate antibiotic treatment could have avoided such an outcome.

For this reason the Medical Negligence team at Royds Withy King feel honoured to be working with the charity Group B Strep Support in their tireless efforts to raise awareness amongst medical staff and pregnant women about GBS, in an effort to avoid other families suffering the consequences of an undiagnosed infection.”
