Bernadette Worthington

Partner

Bernadette works primarily in the healthcare sector but has employment law experience across the board. She has a particular interest in discrimination, whistleblowing and resolution of complex interpersonal disputes. In recent years a large proportion of her work has focussed on doctor related matters.

Bernadette has advised over the years on a number of high profile and sensitive internal investigations, including advice related to minimising the effects of adverse publicity and appropriately satisfying the requirements of relevant regulatory bodies.

Bernadette is a very experienced and popular trainer in all aspects of employment law. Clients say that in addition to Bernadette's pragmatism and ability to give quick, relevant advice, they particularly like the way she is able to deal with tricky employment matters retaining calm and above all, an appropriate sense of humour.
