I have been so impressed with the team's professionalism, persistence and expertise during my claim. I would have no hesitation in recommending Blake Lapthorn in the future.
Please wash your hands!

I was delighted to read that the number of reported cases of MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) has significantly decreased by as much as 50% over the last 2 years in an editorial report by the editor of the British Medical Journal (BMJ).
Interestingly though, Peter Lapsley, a patient editor of the BMJ, highlights
a 'gaping hole in defences' in
the form of visitors to patients in hospital and the lack of acceptance of
utilising hand gel dispensers now present in nearly hospitals across the
country. Read the full article here.
Whilst I agree that the health service should and has taken positive steps to prevent the spread of infection in recent years, everyone must take responsibility and do their bit to help the cause; all it takes is 3 minutes to wash your hands!
