I am originally from Sunderland, but now live in a small rural village with my fiancée between York and Harrogate. I’m a keen long and middle distance runner and spend most of my free time running. In the last 12 months I have taken part in 3 European marathons (Amsterdam, Vienna and Oslo). In the winter I can be found skiing in the Alps. When not running or skiing I can be found watching Rugby Union, Rugby League, Football, Cycling and the Cricket, or alternatively restoring my late 19th century country cottage and garden.

I studied for my undergraduate degree (BA) and postgraduate degree (MA) in Archaeology at Durham university between 1999 and 2003.

Following my time at Durham University, I worked for Citizens Advice from 2003 to 2006. Whilst working for Citizens Advice I studied the Law conversion course and legal practice course at the College of Law in York and graduated with an LLB in 2007.

Following the completion of my studies I worked as a criminal paralegal for a firm of Solicitors in Sunderland. I assisted on a number of high profile matters including a 3 week murder trial in 2008, which was covered by the national media.

I commenced my training contract in 2008 with a specialist Clinical Negligence law firm in Doncaster.

I qualified as a Clinical Negligence solicitor in 2010 and have practiced Clinical Negligence ever since.

During the past 10 years I have successfully represented hundreds of clients, some of whom have suffered birth injuries, brain injuries, spinal injuries and multiple amputations, as a result of medical negligence. During my time as a clinical negligence solicitor I have developed a wide range of experience and dealt with many different types of cases which have involved: General Surgery; Orthopaedics; Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Medicine; Respiratory Medicine; Urology; Obstetrics and Gynaecology; Gastroenterology; GP and Dental Care; Accident and Emergency Medicine; Spinal Surgery; ophthalmology.

Alistair’s notable Cases have included:

An award for £450,000.00 in damages for a child who suffered a missed diagnosis and delayed treatment of a Slipped Upper femoral Ephysis by a hospital Orthopedic team;

An award for £400,000.00 in damages for a client who suffered a delayed diagnose and treatment of compartment syndrome, whilst in hospital;

An award for £330,000.00 in damages for a client who endured 4 sets of substandard knee surgery, which included allegations of assault against her treating surgeon;

An award for £250,000.00 in damages for a client who suffered a delayed diagnosis, referral and treatment of Cauda Equina syndrome by her GP;

An award for £175,000.00 in damages for a client who suffered an MRSA knee infection due to the negligence of her local hospital and failures in the consent process.


I am literally overwhelmed by how prompt, professional and helpful Alistair has been

I could not have dealt with a better solicitor than Alistair, I felt well looked after the entire time

If I need help again Alistair will be the first and only person I’ll contact

Alistair was extremely helpful and sympathetic to my case and all that I had gone through and the future problems that I might go through.

I was kept up to date by Alistair who clearly explained anything I didn’t understand

Alistair’s advice was clear and concise

Alistair made my case painless, it was so easy and effortless. I would definitely refer a friend if they ever needed a lawyer

CN: Suicide, self harm

"The jury highlighted how, despite the fact Payne had apparently tried to take her own life earlier that day, staff did not remove from her room an item she had used in that suicide attempt and went on to use that evening."

Here at Pryers Solicitors we believe mental health is just as important as physical health. All patients deserve safe, and easy access to the care they need #WorldMentalHealthDay
