MI Lunch – 24 March 2016
‘Hello from the other side: tales from the tribunal’ – Regulating healthcare professionals and the public interest
Mason Institute Lunchtime Seminar: 24 March 2016, Craigmillar Room, School of Geosciences, Edinburgh Bioquarter, 9 Little France Road, Edinburgh, EH16 4UX
Speaker: Annie Sorbie (Wellcome Trust Liminal Spaces Project
Over the last 15 years Annie has prepared, prosecuted and advised upon hundreds of cases before the national regulatory tribunals, as well as in the civil courts. These cases concern the fitness to practise of a wide range of healthcare professionals, from pharmacists to chiropractors, and span conduct from clinical incompetence to dishonesty and sexual misconduct. Drawing on her experience, Annie will provide a lively and accessible insight into how the courts have approached the concept of the public interest in this context.
Annie will use her experience at the coalface to stimulate a multi-disciplinary discussion of how the concept of the public(s) interest features (or not!) in your work.
This session will have resonance for a wide range of scholars and practitioners, working in health, regulation, law and beyond.
A light lunch will be served from 12:30 with presentations beginning at 13:00.
The event will take place on 24 March 2016 in the Craigmillar Room, School of Geosciences, Edinburgh Bioquarter, 9 Little France Road, Edinburgh, EH16 4UX
