President’s lecture – 11 October 2018

The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow is delighted to announce that the second President’s Leadership Lecture will take place on 11 October 2018 in Glasgow. This free event focuses on matters related to the GMC review of Gross Negligence Manslaughter, and Culpable Homicide (in Scotland).

Following the ruling by the Court of Appeal on Monday 13th August to overturn the High Court’s decision to strike Dr Bawa-Garba from the medical register earlier this year, this topic will be of great interest to members of the public, especially those working in healthcare.

Our speaker is Neil Mackenzie. Neil is a member of the Faculty of Advocates who has specialised in the areas of professional negligence and industrial disease, and is predominantly instructed as junior counsel in complex, high value medical negligence actions.

The event will take place at Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow 232-242 St. Vincent Street Glasgow G2 5RJ on 11 October at 6pm.

President David Galloway said “We are delighted to welcome Neil Mackenzie to the Royal College to discuss this important issue with members, fellows and the wider public. This timely discussion, in the context of the Bawa-Garba case, brings into focus the current GMC review of gross negligence manslaughter and culpable homicide and the event will undoubtedly add a range of voices to the debate.”

Neil Mackenzie said “I am delighted to have been invited to speak at the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow on such an important topic. I look forward to bringing my perspective to the debate and listening to the views of those who attend.”
