Event description

Description

**This event is open to HPMA London Academy members only**

Managing medical staff is increasingly important for trusts needing to ensure patient safety amidst ever greater regulatory and public scrutiny. Revalidation and the Francis and Keogh reviews have all had a significant impact. However, as Trusts move more frequently into formal (MHPS) processes, legal challenges in response have become much more common.

This session will cover:

  • What is “Maintaining High Professional Standards” (MHPS) – and why is it so important?
  • What is the National Clinical Assessment Service (NCAS) – and when and how should you involve NCAS?
  • Options for the informal management of doctors.
  • The importance of case investigation in MHPS.
  • The role of the Case Manager in MHPS.
  • Conduct, capability and ill-health.
  • Alternatives to MHPS.

Target audience:

The session, which will be based around practical examples and case studies, will equip HR Professionals, including specialist Medical Workforce Managers, to assist Medical Directors and senior clinical managers in handling issues involving doctors effectively and without successful legal challenge.

Facilitator:

This interactive session will be facilitated by Victoria Watson and Andrew Rowland, Employment Partners at Capsticks. Capsticks are specialist advisers in healthcare law and have worked with NHS Trusts in London and nationally to defend legal challenges brought by defence bodies in response to Trusts applying MHPS when serious concerns about doctors have arisen.
