Event description

The symposium will look at specific cases considering whether the supposed control mechanisms of breach and causation in clinical negligence operate reasonably and effectively in the context of the vast difference in outcome between those who succeed as a claimant as opposed to those of similar disabilities who rely upon the state.

Confirmed speakers include:

•Charles Feeny, Barrister;

•Professor Sandy Steel, The University of Oxford;

•Professor Derek Tuffnell, Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist; and

•Dr David Levy, Consultant Anaesthetist.

The symposium will look at two decisions of the Court of Appeal; Sutcliffe v Aintree Hospitals and Popple v Birmingham NHS Trust, where Defendants were unsuccessful in appeals against findings of liability.  There will be in depth analysis of each case with the assistance of a relevant expert and legal input.
