Covid-19: Key legal considerations arising from the pandemic

Hempsons and NHS Providers have launched a joint publication at the NHS Providers annual conference and exhibition.

The coronavirus pandemic has raised questions as to how NHS providers can meet their legal obligations to staff and patients, and how their boards and trust leaders seek sufficient assurance in respect of potential liabilities while working under immense pressure. This guide looks at the legal liabilities that are likely to arise due to the environment created by the pandemic and suggests ways in which trust boards could respond. The guide is deliberately broad, covering a range of issues that have been raised with us as areas of concern since the beginning of the pandemic in the UK:

  • Clinical negligence
  • Employment and workforce
  • Governance and board liabilities
  • Health and safety
