PROFILE

Catherine was a solicitor for ten years before transferring to the Bar in 2011. She worked as a Senior Crown Prosecutor for the CPS in Manchester, providing pre-charge advice to the police, advocacy in the magistrates', youth, and Crown courts, training to colleagues and management of a team of higher court advocates.

Catherine then moved to become an in-house advocate with the General Medical Council, prosecuting before Fitness to Practise hearings, Interim Orders panels and Restoration and Investigation Committees. Since transferring to the Bar, Catherine has continued working in this field and appears regularly for the GMC in the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service, prosecuting cases of serious clinical and sexual misconduct, and is ranked as a leading barrister in the field of professional discipline in Chambers and Partners UK Bar Guide. She has also continued to deliver training to lawyers, clinical performance assessors, general practitioners and hospital doctors on various aspects of medical regulation.

Catherine was appointed to the Attorney-General's Panel of Junior Counsel to the Crown in 2015. She represents the Prison and Probation Services in inquests involving deaths in custody where Article 2 is engaged, and also acts for entities such as care homes and medical staffing agencies in the coroner’s court.
