Kate Edmondson, current President of the Insurance Institute of Leeds works in Financial Lines and we have arranged a mini series of financial lines-related CPD webinars to demonstrate the region's ability to place, and specialise in, different areas.

This is the third of four webinars taking place during January so book your place now!

2024 will be a year of health and care sector reform. The session will look at three key changes for the year ahead:

1. Raising standards: The imminent arrival of the new Good Medical Practice

Content: The updated version of Good medical practice comes into effect on 30 January 2024. This sets out the professional standards for all GMC registered doctors in the UK.

Learning outcomes: This section of the presentation highlights the key changes to doctors’ duties and the standards that govern their behaviours and values. It is a hugely topical and vitally important subject for all insurance professionals working with doctors and GMC registered healthcare professionals.

2. Protecting the public: the new aesthetics licensing scheme

Content: An overview of continuing progress towards the long-awaited regulation of aesthetics sector and what we can expect to see in 2024.

Learning outcomes: This section of the presentation aims to provide insurance professionals working with the aesthetic sector with insight into these key reforms of this hugely important and rapidly evolving sector. The talk will cover the treatments that are likely to be in scope; the implications for medics and non-medics and their insurers; how the new licence will be enforced and regulated; timescale for implementation.

3. A CQC inspector calls: the new Single Assessment Framework

Content: An overview of the CQC’s new single assessment framework that will come into effect in 2024. How it will operate in practice. What it means for independent sector practitioners. Timeline for implementation.

Learning outcomes: These are the changes that are keeping your CQC regulated clients awake at night! This section of the presentation aims to provide insurance professionals working with the health and care sectors with a clearer understanding of these fundamentally important reforms that determine how the country’s leading healthcare regulator will monitor, inspect and regulate services.
