WEBINAR: Prioritising access to life-saving treatment – legal considerations

CategoryWebinars Archive Author Parishil Patel KC, Steve Broach , Ruth Keating, Gethin Thomas Date

As the current public health crisis intensifies, the need for NHS bodies to adopt policies on how they will prioritise access to life-saving treatment becomes more acute. There is an obvious risk that such policies will discriminate unlawfully in relation to protected characteristics including age and disability.

This webinar will explore:

  • The legal basis for the prioritisation of NHS treatment
  • The types of policies which NHS bodies are adopting
  • Discrimination issues arising under the Equality Act 2010
  • Human rights considerations
