Event Details

Bringing together medical and legal experts

The conference will be a great opportunity for medical professionals to network, meet our legal speakers, share experiences of being an expert witness, get the latest updates on case law and new test cases and take part in a panel discussion on working together with your lawyer.  We are often told by medical professionals that they get little feedback from the lawyers who instruct them and this is a good opportunity to feed that back to some of the leading lawyers in the clinical negligence sector.
