The aims of this new webinar will be to provide a case law update on recent developments in clinical negligence, consider whether there has been any extension of the traditional tests, and look at the practical aspects of leading expert evidence.
Proposed legislation concerning the funding and running of cases and what practical impact that will have will be discussed. The implications of current duties for doctors will also be considered.
After attending this webinar, delegates will have an understanding of:-
- liability and causation, what expert evidence do you need to lead
- whether the goalposts shifted in recent judgements on Hunter v Hanley negligence claims and Montgomery consent cases
- the implications of the current Bills before Parliament on Funding, Group Proceedings and Periodical Payment Orders
- doctors under scrutiny – how does the prosecution of Dr Bawa-Garba sit with the Duty of Candour Regulations now in force in Scotland?
