Outer Temple Chambers barrister set to speak at healthcare regulation conference
Outer Temple Chambers barrister James Counsell will be a guest speaker at the CLT conference on the regulation of healthcare professionals in London on 25 September 2013
According to the firm, it has been another eventful year in healthcare regulation. The publication of the Francis report into the mid-Staffordshire scandal and the decision to hold an inquiry into failings in Morecambe Bay have led to scrutiny of the conduct of professionals and the fitness for purpose of regulators.
The Law Commission is working on a draft bill aimed at introducing a more consistent approach to regulation across the professions.
