About this event

This event is organised by Hempsons.

In this free webinar Helen Claridge (a Partner in the Hempsons Healthcare Advisory Team) and Jennifer Hovington (a Solicitor in the Hempsons Healthcare Litigation Team) will discuss the legal complexities surrounding consent, capacity and care planning in the context of COVID19.

The discussion will include:

  • how the consent process has been affected during the pandemic and the possible legal ramifications;
  • assessing capacity and the Mental Capacity Act 2005 in extraordinary circumstances;
  • avance care planning in the pandemic – a difficult path to tread?

The session will be followed by a Q&A.
