Improving patient safety, by means of a reduction of medical errors, has been a major focus of attention over the past several years. This one-day meeting, will review progress to date and consider how further progress can be made. Speakers include Professor Sir Terence Stephenson, Chairman of the General Medical Council and Mr David Sellu, who went to prison on a charge of gross negligence manslaughter.

The ways and means of turning back the tide of litigation against doctors will be debated as well as the appropriateness of the use of criminal prosecution of surgeons for ‘gross negligence manslaughter’.
