The Dukes' Club Website

Doctors, Manslaughter and Avoidable Harm

It's in central London near the RCS on April 10th 2-630pm. There's also a website where people can sign up directly: http://www.doctorsandmanslaughter.org.uk/

This meeting is being hosted in response to deep concerns over the increasing trend for doctors to be prosecuted in the criminal courts when their patients die. There is also a fear, based on recent prosecutions, that criminal courts may not understand the inherent complexities of such cases. The ever-growing threat of criminal proceedings could discourage doctors from involvement with high risk patients in both their NHS and private practice. It may also increase the practice of "medico-legal medicine/surgery". As this issue crosses the boundary of medicine and law, the meeting is open to both these professions, as well as wider interested parties.
Please do register via the website. Tickets are selling fast http://www.doctorsandmanslaughter.org.uk/
