What the law and surgery means to you?
Being aware of how the legal systems govern principles in your surgical profession can be a huge benefit. With the rising number of claims against doctors, understanding implications could not be more important now more than ever.
How will I benefit?
This one-day event will focus on all elements of Surgery and the Law from both sides of the bar.
You will receive insight into a number of legal issues to help you prepare if the worst happens, how to prevent harm and safeguard patients and support colleagues as well as developing an understanding of how to be an expert witness and how legal systems work. The RCS is here to ensure you are supported for safer surgery.
Join us to hear first-hand insight from surgeons, coroners and patients on how to work safely within the law.
There will be informative sessions on:
- Legal Systems.
- What the regulators are doing.
- A view from the top and a patients perspective.
Who should attend?
This conference is aimed at all career grades, specialities and SAS surgeons.
If you are interested in hearing more on clinical and criminal negligence and how to be prepared for what to do if the worst happens, then come along to receive support and practical advice from an amazing range of speakers.
