About this event

Join us on 7 June 2023 for the first in our Anatomy of a Claim series aiming to help healthcare professionals better understand the claims process.

Jennifer Harris (Legal Director – Claims) will introduce you to Helen Ayers (Principal Associate) in our specialist clinical negligence claims team who will take you through some of the challenges of investigating and valuing these catastrophic claims and their impact on patients.

This will include consideration of:

  • Causation – what is the legal test and how do we investigate.
  • The importance of good records to aid those investigations.
  • Quantum – what heads of loss are likely to be claimed and how are they are valued.
  • The financial impact of amputation claims on the NHS more generally.

This webinar will be of interest to medical professionals of all levels whether in NHS Trusts, primary, secondary, private or community healthcare. It will also be of interest to Directors, legal services and complaints managers as well as Governance and Risk teams dealing with claims.
