When healthcare becomes a crime. Lessons from the world of medical manslaughter. University of Auckland.

Dr Jenny Vaughan DAUK’s Law and Policy Officer will be giving an open lecture on the criminalisation of healthcare at the University of Auckland. Delivery of safe healthcare currently faces unprecedented challenges in the UK and globally. This arises, at least partly, from a rising involvement of the criminal law in the investigation of medical errors apparently conflicting with the need to respect a “duty of candour”. As a result, doctors face enormous pressures in fear of being blamed for medical errors.
