Patients' rights during Covid-19

We have received a number of queries from our health and social care organisational clients regarding specific rights of social and healthcare patients they are treating and caring for during the COVID-19 Pandemic. We therefore thought it would be of assistance to provide another free webinar exploring these issues and answering commonly raised questions.

Please note the focus of this webinar is to help NHS, Independent health provider and social care organisations understand the position during this emergency period.

The webinar will be an opportunity for your questions to be answered and will focus on:

  • Visits between patients and their families
  • Right to treatment and DNA CPR
  • Seclusion, Isolation and Social Distancing (MHA and MCA considerations)
  • Capacitous patients/service users failing to adhere to Covid-19 guidance

The webinar will be chaired by Gerard Hanratty, Partner and Head of Health at Browne Jacobson.

This webinar took place on 23rd April and is now available on-demand.

A recording will also be available to watch from our LinkedIn page after the live session.
