Dear Lawyer Service Member,

An update on AvMA’s LSG webinars for June 2021 onwards:

AvMA’s lawyer service members team having been working hard behind the scenes to provide you with more quality presentations and webinars.  As you can imagine, our usual pool of medical experts has been curtailed as they quite rightly focus their attention and efforts on doing what they can to fight the pandemic.  Nonetheless, we are very pleased to have been able to provide you with some excellent presentations on a range of issues to date with more to come, details below.

If you have missed any of our LSG webinars you may be able to view these by subscribing to AvMA’s conference department Medico Legal webinars.

LSGs are currently available for:

 Mr Steve Kriss MPhil FCPod, Consultant Podiatric Surgeon: “Litigation and the foot. A Podiatric view”  Available until 25th June 2021.

 Jeremy Hyam QC and Alasdair Henderson (both of 1 Crown Office Row) on Bell v Tavistock & Portman NHS Foundation Trust [2020].  Available from 22nd June 2021 until 8th July.

 We are most fortunate to have Jeremy and Alasdair who represented the Claimant in the High Court in December 2020, talk us through the legal issues behind this emotionally difficult and highly controversial case.  Naturally, their discussion will focus on the requirement that a minor has the requisite mental capacity to undergo puberty blocking drugs in cases of gender dysphoria and what this means in practice. The Court of Appeal is due to hear the case on 23rd June.

 Annette Jeanes MSc. RN.DipN.DiplC, “Infection prevention and control during the Covid-19 pandemic”.  Available for two weeks from 28th June to 9th July 2021. 

This is an important webinar for anyone considering bringing a claim on behalf of patients who contracted Covid 19 while in hospital.

Dominic Woodhouse National Training Manager for PIC Legal: Recovering Inquest Costs” Available from 6th September.

Dominic continues his very popular costs series on 6th September – save the date!

Best wishes
