‘Ms Govind has appeared before me on a number of occasions in various inquests. The most recent inquest was a medical death with multiple clinical inputs over a considerable period of time with multiple possible causation avenues to explore. During the course of the inquest Ms Govind demonstrated a thorough understanding of her witnesses evidence, how these related to the overall clinical picture and a thorough knowledge of where the relevant entries were in the medical records to support her witnesses. From the interaction in court between Ms Govind and her client, it was clear that there was a good working relationship and the witnesses understood their role and the inquest process. Ms Govind demonstrated a clear understanding of the scope of an inquest, the points that the clinicians needed to convey to the Court and how these should be most appropriately addressed in response made to questions raised by the family’s advocate.’– HM Senior Coroner
