Tim Spring is a healthcare solicitor with a particular interest in patient safety.

He first encountered encephalitis when working for the NHS 25 years ago investigating serious clinical errors and why they occur.

Tim has been engaged with and supported the Encephalitis Society for many years. His role as Course Director of the UK’s first university accredited Clinical Risk Management Programme for healthcare professionals led to his current role as a Royal Society of Medicine Patient Safety Section Council member.

Tim has represented patient groups in many governance structures of the NHS advocating a safety agenda.

He believes the altruism of patients and their families can contribute greatly to improvements in patient care.

Tim was born in Cleethorpes and when not at work often still finds himself close to or even in the bracing North Sea!
