Home > Seminars > Webinar – The Looming Public Inquiry on COVID-19: tips on preparation for the NHS and other public bodies

This webinar has now taken place. You can find the presentation slides and a link to the webinar recording in our resources tab or by clicking here

The APPG has recently started a public investigation into COVID-19 and there are significant calls within and without government for a public inquiry. NHS bodies are likely to be involved in some way, shape or form. This webinar will give practical advice as to how to prepare for some form of inquiry, the likely scope of evidence to be sought, and how to manage any such inquiry.


David Lock QC is a leading practitioner in all areas of healthcare. He is currently representing a group of core participants who are HIV positive or have Hepatitis C and their families as a result of contaminated blood transfusions in the infected blood inquiry and represents a whistleblower in the Undercover Police Inquiry.

Fiona Scolding QC is senior counsel to three strands of the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse, relating to residential schools, the Anglican Church and religious organisations and settings.

Carine Patry was counsel to the Leveson Inquiry into the standards and behaviours of the press.

All three have a wealth of practical experience as to how to respond to and manage the public inquiry process.
