In 2013, Meetings on February 25, 2013 at 8:30 am

The Centre for Law, Ethics and Globalisation (CLEG) at Southampton Law School and Hickman and Rose Solicitors in collaboration with the Centre for Health Ethics and Law (HEAL) invite you to their first joint annual event: a discussion and Q&A with Robert Francis QC, in discussion with Prof. Jonathan Montgomery.

We are proud to host Robert Francis QC, the chairman of the Mid-Stafford Inquiry, for an evening concerning the legal aspects of his Report and in conversation with Jonathan Montgomery, Professor of Health Care Law of Southampton Law School. The Inquiry Report, published on 6 February, raises fundamental questions about the culture of the NHS, professional and managerial values and how to ensure that caring for patients is the first and paramount concern of health services. It provides an opportunity to reconsider the values of humanity and dignity and how to promote them. There will be a question and answer session with the audience. The Report can be found at http://www.midstaffspublicinquiry.com/report.

The discussion will be chaired by Daniel Machover, Partner, Head of Civil Litigation, Hickman and Rose and hosted by Professor Adam Wheeler, Provost, Southampton University. Further details can be found here, and to book a place email Jo Hazell at J.L.Hazell@soton.ac.uk. Bookings will close on 25 February 2013.
