Paul McNeil speaks at C5 Advanced Forum on Obstetric Negligence
Obstetric Negligence conference
|Speaking after the event Paul commented: “Obstetric negligence cases cost the NHS hundreds of million pounds every year. It still requires the utmost skill to win a case on behalf of a child with cerebral palsy. Only expert lawyers with specialist experience can deal with such cases. The conference was a useful forum to exchange views and hone skills”.|
The two day event took place on 22 May 2008 at Jurys Great Russell Hotel in London and was attended by medical negligence lawyers, obstetricians, gynaecologists, hospital and clinical risk managers, senior midwives and obstetric nurses. A panel of healthcare experts discussed key issues in obstetric negligence which are a major source of litigation against the NHS and other UK healthcare providers, and provided information on the latest developments and current best practice.
Paul McNeil presented a paper entitled "Common Negligent Errors in Obstetric Cases: A Claimant Lawyer’s Perspective.” He provided diverse examples of medical negligence case studies and advised on the best practices in the management of obstetric negligence claims on behalf of claimants.
