Patient safety and Costs top agenda at AvMA Clinical Negligence Conference
Posted on 4th March 2022 at 14:33
DIRECTORS Lee Carter and Jon-Paul Burnett will be attending the 32nd AvMA Clinical Negligence Conference later this month to meet delegates, discuss Costs issues and hear about the latest developments to promote patient safety.
Held at the Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds on March 24 and 25, the prestigious event brings together the very best medical and legal experts from across the UK.
Organised by the AvMA, a charity which aims to improve patient safety and justice, the annual Conference is designed to ensure practitioners stay up to date with all the key issues and policies in clinical negligence and medical law.
Whilst it provides an excellent opportunity to network, the event is usually a very thought-provoking experience which discusses why patients litigate and the latest claims updates.
Lee and Jon-Paul will be joined by Seamus Kelly, Solicitor Advocate and Manager of our Newcastle office, and Costs Negotiator Stephen Johnson when they attend the showcase ‘Welcome Event’ at the SkyLounge at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel in Leeds on the evening of March 23.
The team will then host an exhibition stand on both days of the Conference where they will be on hand to discuss all aspects of Costs and Budgeting.
Looking ahead to the occasion, director Lee Carter said: “Everyone who works in the specialist area of Clinical Negligence knows the importance of this event, so I’m thrilled it’s still seen as force for promoting justice and patient safety.
“In our experience, the Conference is great for keeping up to date with the latest rulings and judgements. It’s also important to hear the latest developments and how they might influence future Costs cases.
“As one of the most prestigious events of the year, it will be nice to exhibit there again after a two-year break because of Covid. I’m sure we’ll see a few familiar faces, but we’re also looking to meet new people to discuss any Costs issues they might have.”
