This event has now finished.

The healthcare team invite you to a mock trial based on a claim by a member of healthcare staff for assault.

The seminar will cover:

  • The Trial is based on a real case and will provide practical guidance for anyone who is required to assist in preparing evidence for, give evidence in or advise colleagues what to expect when giving evidence in a Civil Trial.
  • Issues to be addressed by the court will be the adequacy of risk assessments/care plans, the placement of a service user/patient, the correct level of observations and training – the common themes we see in assault claims.
  • We will be utilising experienced barristers from 12 Kings Bench Walk chambers to represent both parties. Another barrister will act as the judge and our experienced solicitors will be on hand to assist with any queries. Those attending will be encouraged to comment and provide their views as to the possible conclusions that the judge could reach.
  • This event is likely to be of interest to those working in a legal or risk management team in a healthcare setting.
