About this event

This event being is organised by one of our panel firms, Clyde & Co.

In light of the Care Quality Commission (CQC)’s increasing use of enforcement action, particularly prosecutions, against both NHS Trusts and independent sector providers, Clyde & Co are delighted to invite you to a seminar on 19 March 2020.Speakers will include Judith Duffin from Clyde & Co and guest speaker Paul Spencer from Serjeants’ Inn Chambers

The seminar will cover:

  • Statutory framework: CQC’s key functions and powers
  • CQC’s involvement in inquests: early consideration of a potential prosecution
  • Invitations to caution interview and written responses: how to respond and the consequences of failing to do so
  • Limitation / time limits: potential arguments
  • Potential fines: the Court’s approach to sentencing
  • Practical tips and advice on working with the CQC

The presentations will be followed by a Q&A session, where Judith and Paul will be joined by leading members of Clyde & Co’s health and social care team. The seminar will then be followed by a drinks reception.
