At Thompson’s we would like to reassure all our clients that as far as possible we are operating as normal. The health and safety of our staff and clients is our primary concern during this outbreak and as such we are reviewing the situation on a regular basis and will be adapting our working practices following government guidelines. However, we have had to make some minor changes to how we are doing things.

Following Government guidelines, we have temporarily closed all of our offices and our staff are now all working from home using secure technologies to ensure they are able to continue to progress with existing and new cases as normal. All face to face meetings have been cancelled, however we are continuing to hold these meetings via phone and video calls. All the team are contactable on their direct dial numbers and email should you need to speak with your solicitor, please do not hesitate to talk to us about anything during this time.

We know these are uncertain and unsettling times for many of our clients, and the wider population, and things might look a little different for the foreseeable future. But our focus remains on our dedication, knowledge and strength that we provide to all our clients. We will continue to provide updates over the coming days and weeks in accordance with official guidelines and to keep everyone informed of the situation.

As always, for any concerns, advice and updates on your case; Talk to Thompsons.

The First Minister, the Right Honourable Alex Salmond will tomorrow (Thursday) meet with parents who have been affected by the baby ashes scandal.

A group of parents from across Scotland who were denied the ashes of their deceased babies from crematoria will meet the First Minister to make their case for a public inquiry. The First Minister has agreed to hear first hand in a private meeting the experiences of parents who recently found out that their children’s ashes were scattered or discarded without their knowledge.

Linsay Bonar is among the parents who were told there would be no ashes following her son’s cremation who died in 2006 at just 33 hours old. She said: “We are extremely encouraged that the First Minister has agreed to meet us and hear first hand what parents like me have had to endure. The past few months have caused complete devastation for so many parents who trusted that our precious babies would be looked after in the days and weeks following their premature deaths. The revelation that this wasn’t the case has caused fresh grief and anger and now we are asking for answers.

“We are grateful to the First Minister for making time is his demanding schedule to meet with us and we are hopeful that the meeting will be fruitful.”

The meeting will take place at the Scottish Parliament on Thursday 27th June.
