A hearing was set and then replaced by a Special Directions Hearing for 29 July subsequently adjourned until 9 August. The Court said that 'The reason for the hearing is that this may be a "clinical negligence" type of defence requiring specific pre action steps to be taken'.
Please advise me of what can I expect at the hearing and do I need to take specific data?

The Special Directions Hearing has been postponed until 9th August (not at my request)

And what is the time estimate for the hearing? How long is it listed for?

Ok - this is only a short hearing. The Judge will just decide whether the claim ought to be stayed pending compliance with the pre action steps.

It may just mean the claim is put on hold, just for the moment.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
