HCUK Masterclass: Giving Evidence at Coroner’s Court
This course is for all healthcare staff who may have to give evidence at a coroner’s inquest, plus those who need to support them in such circumstances (including Heads of Clinical Service, Clinical Directors, Matrons, Clinical Governance Managers, and Patient Safety leads).
This one-day course is designed to provide delegates with the key skills and knowledge required to be a confident and capable witness at a coroner’s inquest or to support colleagues who are required to do so.
The course will cover topics such as the coroner’s role, the purpose of an inquest, how to prepare witness statements, how to prepare for the inquest hearing itself, and how to give factual witness evidence in court. The emphasis will be on practical understanding, aided by exercises in statement writing and giving evidence, delivered in a safe and supportive environment. Reports in recent years (CQC, NHS Improvement, NHS Resolution) have repeatedly called for additional support for staff involved in serious incidents, which may often include involvement in coronial processes. This course provides such support in an interactive setting, with ample opportunities for questions and practical learning.
