Webinar objectives:

Head of Underwriting Operations and Deputy Head of Policy
Dr Helen Hartley qualified from Birmingham University in 1992 before training in anaesthesia in Birmingham and South Thames regions. 

She worked as a consultant anaesthetist in London from 2003 until an interest in risk management and law prompted her retrain as a medicolegal adviser in 2010. Helen then joined Medical Protection, advising and supporting members on ethical and medicolegal matters including complaints, claims, inquests and investigations.

Having led a team of advisers from 2014 and acted as a part-time risk consultant to the Medical Protection underwriting team from 2015, she moved full-time into underwriting in 2017 as head of operations and deputy head of policy. She writes and lectures regularly on medicolegal and indemnity matters and is a media spokesperson for Medical Protection.

Dr Kirsa Morganti graduated from Aberdeen University in 1989 and worked for several years in the pharmaceutical industry prior to completing her GP training in 1996.

She currently works as a medicolegal advisor at Medical Protection assisting members on ethical and medicolegal concerns including complaints, inquests, criminal matters, and regulatory and disciplinary investigations.
