First PRASIS Educational Day - "Managing the Risk Profile of your Private Practice"
17th September 2017
PRASIS held its first educational day for consultants on Saturday 16th September at the CFC Underwriting Ltd Offices, City of London and it was a great success.
During the morning session we ran a varied programme including presentations by Tony Yeaman of Weightmans LLP who explained the sequence of events in a claim, and David Coleman, who shared his experiences of being sued. David’s talk was particularly enlightening since it demonstrated how this could happen to any one of us. We also ran an interactive session, which was a milestone in how we can discuss our cases without being judgemental. Following lunch, we staged a mock trial around a rhinoplasty case. This demonstrated how a surgeon would be cross-examined at trial and was very close to reality since the cross examination was conducted by a practising barrister in the presence of a judge. Tips in avoiding litigation and giving evidence in court were also discussed. Attendees had the opportunity to meet members of the Board and the broking, underwriting and medicolegal teams.
