About this event

  • Date and time Fri 16 Sep 2022 from 9:30am to 4:00pm
  • Location Royal Society of Medicine
  • Organised by Patient Safety

Join this meeting as we focus on some of the key medico-legal issues that impact upon GPs/primary care. The overarching aim is to improve patient safety in both primary and secondary care via learning from incidents and better understanding the indemnity provisions in place for GPs/primary care and how that feeds back into learning.

The aim of this meeting is to review and promote an understanding of recent legal and regulatory developments, with a specific emphasis on inquests, clinical negligence and incidents in the Primary Care Sector, and their impact upon patient safety. Additionally, we will also discuss issues that those in Secondary Care should also be aware of.

This meeting will also be available to watch as a live stream. To register to watch the meeting via live stream, please click here.
