Event Overview
Welcome message:

Every paediatrician will encounter many child protection cases during their clinical career and it is likely that a high proportion of these will require written reports, with some cases leading to legal proceedings. Paediatricians have a key role in both providing written evidence and presenting as a professional witness in family, criminal or civil proceedings.


On occasion some paediatricians may accept an instruction to appear as an expert witness.


The RCPCH has developed this popular and successful two day course in conjunction with medical and legal experts. These experts are highly trained and bring vast amounts of experience from within the safeguarding sector. The central objective of this course is to increase knowledge of legal proceedings, develop competences in engaging with proceedings and build confidence amongst paediatricians to tackle this area of work.


This course will give you an opportunity to work closely with your peers to share best practice in this area. It will provide a forum for discussion and a friendly environment in which to ask questions of the experts from both medical and legal sides.
