About this event

Join Capsticks on Wednesday 24 January to reflect on some of the key cases from 2023 and their impact on clinical negligence claims in preparation for 2024.

Jennifer Harris (Legal Director) will introduce you to Catherine Michel (Senior Associate) and Olivia Banks (Associate) from their specialist clinical claims team who will be looking at:

  • Reasonable Alternatives – The latest position on informed consent following the Supreme Court decision in McCullloch (Deceased) v Forth Valley health Board [2023]
  • Dispute Resolution – Are we going to see mandatory dispute resolution after the Court of Appeal decision in Churchill v Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council [2023]?
  • Material Contribution – Will the approach to material contribution change after the Court of Appeal decision in Holmes v Poeton Holdings Limited [2023]?
  • Secondary Victim Claims – A reminder of where we are on the Paul v Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust [2021] appeal and why it matters.
  • Quantum considerations – Issues to consider in terms of valuation following the case of CCC v Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust [2023]
  • Fixed Costs in Clinical Negligence Claims – When they apply and their likely impact.

This webinar will be of interest to those at all levels of clinical practice in the primary, secondary, community and private sector. It will also provide key guidance to those in legal services, claims management and risk and governance roles.
