MHPS Seminar
9 November 2017
Our MHPS seminar on 9 November 2017 provided delegates with an overview of MHPS (Maintaining High Professional Standards in the Modern NHS) and the opportunity to hear about the practical issues it creates.  MHPS is the national framework for managing concerns about doctors and so HPMA invited Karl Mainprize, Medical Director at Airedale NHS Foundation Trust, to speak about his experiences of managing doctors.  Andrew Davidson (Head of Employment – North) from Hempsons, who is an expert in the legal issues around MHPS, gave an overview of how MHPS works and took delegates through interactive case studies to help them to understand how MHPS works in practice.  The event was very successful with delegates praising the content and delivery.

If you have any questions please contact Andrew Davidson (a.davidson@hempsons.co.uk) t: 01423 724129 / m: 07740 828 724
