Emma acts for a range of interested persons, including NHS Trusts, private companies providing healthcare in prisons and care homes, in inquests in which there is scrutiny of clinical decision-making and policy, as well as in subsequent civil claims. 

Emma is currently instructed on the Infected Blood Inquiry on behalf of the Department of Health and Social Care (one of three junior counsel being led by Eleanor Grey QC).  The Inquiry is examining the circumstances in which men, women and children treated by the NHS in the United Kingdom were given infected blood and infected blood products, in particular since 1970, via blood products and blood transfusions.
