Regulation of Doctors: Bawa-Garba v GMC
John MacGregor will provide an update on the case of Bawa-Garba v GMC and its implications for the future regulation of medical practitioners. The case raises important issues in relation to how the law should balance the need to hold medics to account for mistakes against the wider desire to promote an open culture within the health professions.
Jane McEachran, Consultant in Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery
Consent from the Surgeon’s Perspective
Jane McEachan, Consultant Trauma and Orthopaedic surgeon, will discuss consent from the surgeon’s perspective, in both the elective and emergency settings.
Helen Watts, Advocate
