THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This seminar will be a timely opportunity to discuss the next steps for reducing clinical negligence in the NHS - looking at key issues for patient safety, legal reform and next steps for policy.
It is expected to follow the cross-government response to the Public Accounts Committee inquiry into Managing the costs of clinical negligence in hospital trusts, which called for a collaborative strategy to address the rising cost of clinical negligence.
Delegates will assess what more can be done to reduce patient harm, learn from harm when negligence occurs and improve patient safety in the NHS - including the role of programmes such as Getting It Right First Time in reducing unwarranted variation in care.
Further sessions will discuss the impact of the Civil Liability Bill and post-implementation review of Part 2 of the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012 (LASPO) on controlling the cost of litigation and reducing the pressures on the NHS - as well as what further measures might be taken to prevent claims going to court.
