About this event

This event is being organised by Hempsons, who are one of our panel firms.

Following a successful mediation pilot run by NHS Resolution and CEDR (Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution), we launched a permanent mediation scheme as a further way of resolving clinical claims, whether before or after issue of court proceedings.

Please join us as we and CEDR and Hempsons will share their experiences of the scheme, a year on, and lessons that can be learned for those involved in the defence of clinical claims.

  • A year on, has the scheme actually worked?
  • How do clinical claims mediations actually work?
  • Are there clinical claims which are unsuitable for mediation?
  • What can mediation deliver for NHS staff, claimants and their families?
  • Who should attend mediations?
  • How can clinical and management staff best prepare for and participate in mediations?
  • How early can mediations effectively be set up?

Through a practical workshop based on a case study, delegates will experience how it feels to be involved in a mediation and will learn skills to ensure that, if involved in a mediation, they will be well prepared.

This seminar will be of interest to:

  • NHS Trust legal and complaints managers
  • Clinical directors and risk managers
  • Clinicians with an interest in better and earlier resolution of clinical problems
  • Panel firm lawyers and barristers practising in the field
  • Full-time and Deputy District Judges and Judges dealing with clinical negligence case management
