On Wednesday 10 April, ACL Managing Partner Joice Carthy chaired the 2019 Medical Negligence Litigation Conference, held at the Talbot Hotel in Stillorgan, Co. Dublin. The conference featured discussions on new changes in legislation, examined the number of legalities within Irish healthcare and gave attendees the chance to hear from industry leaders.


The morning session covered topics such as recent developments in Duty of Candour and Open Disclosure for Adverse Events as well the urgent need for change in healthcare litigation. Former Master, National Maternity Hospital, Dr Rhona Mahoney discussed Disclosure and Discovery: Politics, Medicine and the Law while Dr Simon Mills SC took the attendees through the steps of commencing a Medical Negligence Case.


The afternoon saw Anne Conlon, Barrister-at-Law at The Law Library give a Case Law update while barrister Sarah Reid give up-to-date insight into liability for failed screening and diagnosis.


With a recent surge in high-profile cases within the Irish healthcare sector, along with important legislation changes, it was a timely and informative session for attendees from both the healthcare and legal communities.
