Inquests, indemnity and incidents in primary care


Event details

This Royal Society of Medicine meeting will focus on some of the key medico-legal issues that impact GPs, primary care and patient safety, with a specific emphasis on inquests, clinical negligence and incidents.

This comprehensive programme will review and explore the latest legal and regulatory developments from national leaders in each of these fields.

Delegates will gain an understanding of:

  • The role of coroners and inquests, what to expect and what GPs and those working in primary care need to do to prepare and actively learn from deaths.
  • The role of Medical Examiners and how they will impact on primary care.
  • The support, including education and training, available to GPs in dealing with medico-legal issues and how to access practical support (e.g. via the Medical Defence Organisations) when necessary.
  • The role of NHS Resolution and the Clinical Negligence Scheme for GPs (CNSGP) and their impact upon GPs and patient safety.
  • Developments in learning from incidents in primary care, including feedback from the CQC regarding best practice and areas for improvement.
