The Public Health System and Treatment Liability Claims – practical Issues for lawyers on both sides

Wednesday 6th March, 2019 12:00 pm – Wednesday 6th March, 2019 2:00 pm
The Law Society of Western Australia
Level 5, 160 St Georges Terrace PERTH

This seminar is available for in person or webinar attendance.

The governance of public hospitals raises a unique set of issues for parties on both sides of medical treatment liability claims. What to do when a claimant is also an active patient in the public health system? How to request medical documents? And how do common law and the Civil Liability Act defences interact in the most recent cases?  Some of these points are canvassed in this practical session for lawyers acting for and against public health facilities in WA.

Level: General

A light lunch will be provided.
