Piers Norsworthy Lectures on Murder and Manslaughter at Derriford Hospital

In December 2018, Piers Norsworthy (Head of Devon Chambers’ Crime Team) lectured at Derriford Hospital at their “Anaesthesia Post Fellowship Study Day”.

Assisted by Amy Edinborough, Piers attended and gave a presentation to a group of anaesthetists on the subject of murder and manslaughter and how it may impact upon their work.

Joanna Martin QC had been asked to present the talk but owing to her other work commitments was unfortunately unable to do so at short notice. Piers stepped in. With many fascinating questions being asked by the group, Piers outlined the law that applies in the event that someone were to die owing to the gross negligence of a medical practitioner.

We would like to thank Derriford Hospital for their invitation to take part in this event and for their hospitality.
