The series will be supported by the Doubleday Student Society and open to all undergraduate medical students and staff supporting the MB ChB programme.

The first speaker in our conversation series will feature Sir Robert Francis, a renowned barrister and legal consultant who specialises in medical treatment and clinical negligence. Sir Robert has chaired several high-profile healthcare-related inquiries investigating patient safety and the failure of healthcare systems.

He discussed patient care, why what patients think is important, and what healthcare professionals can learn from listening to their patients.

The conversation took place on Wednesday 13 December 2023, and you can watch a recording of it below or on YouTube.
