About this event

Join Capsticks on 21 March 2024 for the next in the Anatomy of a Claim series aimed at helping medical professionals better understand the claims process and the challenges of investigating and defending claims involving vascular surgery.

Jennifer Harris (Legal Director – Claims) is delighted to be joined by Mr Jonothan Earnshaw (Consultant Vascular Surgeon, medico-legal expert and Director of the British Journal of Surgery’s Academy)

Together they will be looking at:

  • What the claimant has to prove to bring a claim in negligence.
  • The three main types of vascular claims seen and what they involve.
  • What a medico-legal expert and lawyer is looking for as part of their investigation.
  • What to consider in daily practice to avoid negligence and help you respond if a claim does arise.

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