Programme - Learning from gross negligence manslaughter cases
Join us on the evening of Thursday 14 March 2019 at The Law Society in London for our consultant event Learning from gross negligence manslaughter cases - an issue of major concern to many doctors at present.
Hear first-hand from a consultant who was accused, convicted and subsequently exonerated of gross negligence manslaughter. Understand more about the circumstances which led to this and how the legal process unfolded over a number of years.
Doctors can be subject to multiple investigations from a single incident and need expert support during this stressful time. Senior MDU staff discuss what it takes to successfully defend these cases.
Take this opportunity to meet with fellow professionals and discuss the concerns these types of cases raise for everyday practice in often complex medical environments.
This event is for consultants and senior ST grade doctors working in the NHS or private practice. Doctors currently on breaks are also welcome to attend.
Earn 2 hours of CPD in the subject area of medical law when accompanied by personal reflection.
Food and drink will be provided. If you have any special dietary requirements, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
