We know that a no-blame medical culture will play a key role in improving patient safety, but how do we keep moving towards this when doctors are frequently facing criminal charges?

Using real-life examples from our case files, we’ll examine how criminal cases can develop, and what you can do along the way to keep yourself safe.

By the end of the webinar you will:

  • understand the legal and regulatory framework of the UK
  • be familiar with issues that give rise to criminal investigations
  • understand what to do in the event of a serious untoward incident
  • know what to do when receiving a call from the police.
