About this event

Join Capsticks on 09 November 2023 for the next of our clinical claims webinar series looking at the importance of documenting a referral decision.

Jennifer Harris (Legal Director) will introduce you to James Blake (Associate) from our specialist clinical claims team who will take you through a case he successfully defended on the issue of a referral decision as an example of getting it right.

This will include consideration of:

  • The legal tests applied when assessing whether it was reasonable not to refer,
  • How the claim was successfully defended;
  • What part hindsight plays in the final assessment,
  • If any; Practical recommendations to take forward to ensure you do not fall foul of indecision or a wrong decision.

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.
