About Maggie Sargent

Maggie Sargent began her career as a Registered General Nurse and trained at St Thomas’ Hospital London. Over 30 years she has acquired considerable experience in providing expert evidence on the cost of caring for clients with complex needs.

She gained in-depth knowledge in caring for patients in her role as nursing director for International Care Limited (a division of International Hospital Group Limited) and by working closely with the highly respected Winifred Smalley MBE of the British Nursing Associates. Winifred was the first person to provide an ‘expert report’ on care and set many precedents for care costings throughout the 1970s, for example Housecroft v Burnett and Rialis. Maggie remained in close contact with Winifred until she sadly passed away in 2018.

During her career, Maggie has published papers on many aspects of Brain Injury Case Management in the community. She also lectures at seminars across the county on cost of care both in the public and private sectors.

She has held a number of positions and directorships in this specialised field: Nursing Adviser on the advisory board for Headway National and a life member. Maggie is also an advanced member of BABICM for clients who have suffered traumatic brain injury and has been a director on the board of CMSUK.

Maggie Sargent has given evidence in over 60 cases and you can see a selection of these judgements by clicking the link below. Copies of others can be provided by our office.

Today Maggie combines preparing expert witness reports while working as the director of a national care consultancy and case management company that offers case management services for clients with profound disability.
