About this event

This event is being organised by one of our legal panel firms, Ward Hadaway.

The General Medical Council (GMC) commissioned an independent review in 2018 to consider how the laws of gross negligence manslaughter and culpable homicide are applied to medical practice.

The review was chaired by Mr Leslie Hamilton, a former Consultant Cardiac Surgeon and HM Assistant Coroner, and the final report was published in June 2019.

We are delighted to have Leslie join us on Tuesday 8th October at our central Leeds office where he will give a fascinating insight into the findings of the working group as to how the system currently operates and the recommendations aimed at achieving a just and fair culture when things go wrong.

This session is specifically aimed at Chief Executives, Medical Directors, Clinical Leads, those responsible for investigating incidents and liaising with family members following a death, Claims and Inquest Managers, Nursing directors as well as Training and Education Leads. We therefore reserve the right to turn down registrations
