Do Paul, Polmear and Purchase represent the end for psychiatric injury in clinical negligence?

APIL CPD:
All levels - 1 hour

(Please note that the number of CPD hours may be subject to change)

"I thought Richard Baker was an engaging speaker, and provided a thorough overview of this topic."

The central theme of the webinar will be whether Paul, Polmear and Purchase represent the end for psychiatric injury in clinical negligence or the beginning of the end for Taylor v. Novo. 

The webinar will focus upon: 

  • The Court of Appeal's decision and a reappraisal of the reasoning in Taylor v. Novo 
  • What the outcome means for claimants
  • How the Supreme Court may approach the problem 
  • How should we risk-assess secondary victim claims until then? 
  • How should we protect the claimants that we are already representing and will this decision lead to a glut of strike-out applications
