Webinar: Informed Consent Before, During and After a Covid-19 World

Over the years, we have brought you updates on the medico-legal issue of informed consent, but nothing has changed the shape of the world quite like the Covid-19 pandemic. This interactive webinar will be showcasing examples of real instances to understand how the law and proceedings have changed, and what the future of these might look like.


We are very pleased to welcome experienced Regulatory Partner and Solicitor, Susan Humble, from RIAA Barker Gillette LLP. Susan has a wealth of experience in dealing with regulatory law in a wide range of industries, including engaging with the General Medical Council, and understands the need for finding a fair resolution.


In the first session we will be understanding whether informed consent has changed legally, and if so, what has changed, how and why. By examining the case study, Montgomery (Appellant) v Lanarkshire Health Board (Respondent) [2015] UKSC11, we will be considering how this would have been dealt with by the Supreme Court if it had happened during a pandemic.


If a complaint is made against you during a pandemic, such as Covid-19, you will need to be prepared for what happens next, how it will be investigated and whether it will be managed differently. We will also be asking: how is a fair process ensured? Are the rules relaxed because of Covid-19? What are your rights and obligations for a virtual hearing? And might the pandemic provide grounds for appeal?


Lastly, exploring three practical case studies from the time of Covid-19, focusing on a Chiropractor, an Osteopath, and a Physiotherapist, we will be discussing the issue of informed consent, the investigation itself and virtual tribunals. We will be using interactive polls to vote on what you think the outcomes should have been and what they were, before discussing the results.

We will send you an email with instructions to register and gain access to the webinar 'room' 24 hours before, and a reminder 1 hour before the event.
