CAN YOU HELP: East Kent Hospitals University Foundation Trust
Medical Education in East Kent Hospitals University Foundation Trust are trying to provide doctors and other health professionals with a one hour lunch time teaching session on Deprivation of Liberty and Safe Guarding and the Mental Capacity Act.
These will take place across the three main acute sites, Margate, Canterbury and William Harvey .
For this to take place we require a legal professional or lawyer who currently practices in this topic area to speak and facilitate the session.
Medical Education would like the sessions to involve a 30/40 minute talk from the speaker followed by a Q&A with the remaining time. Does anyone know of a good legal expert in this field?
