Webinar – Interviews under caution
This one-hour webinar will explore the process and factors involved when being interviewed under caution.
Join Dr Pallavi Bradshaw and Will Childs from Radcliffes Le Brasseur as they explain what happens to healthcare professionals when interviewed under caution. Receiving this kind of scrutiny from the police can be a daunting prospect, and this webinar focusses on the do’s and don’ts for healthcare professionals who find themselves in this situation.
During this webinar the presenters will also explore how third parties such as the GMC, NHS authorities and the Disclosure & Barring Service respond to notification of criminal investigations. By giving you an understanding of this process and the factors that will play a part, we hope to help and reassure you regarding the best course of action to take.
By the end of the webinar, you will understand:
- The types of offences alleged most frequently against healthcare practitioners.
- The Crown Prosecution Service criteria for charging.
- How disclosure works in criminal proceedings.
- Sentencing in the criminal courts.
