Learning from claims: Forum to explore themes of lower limb clinical negligence claims

An upcoming forum will provide an overview of a report which examines clinical negligence claims involving patients who have diabetes and a lower limb complication. 

NHS Resolution is due to publish its report, Diabetes and Lower Limb Complications: A Thematic Review of Clinical Negligence Claims.

An overview of the report’s findings and recommendations will be explored on Thursday, May 12, from 12.30pm to 1.45pm, during a solution-driven and interactive forum.
