    • Will Marshall, Head of Legal & Risk Management, Altea Insurance

In this casualty webinar, Will Marshall provides insurance professionals working with clients in the health and care sectors with insights into some of the key reforms and developments currently affecting these hugely important and rapidly evolving sectors.

This presentation focuses on three specific areas where we are seeing particularly important changes: the new licensing scheme for aesthetic practitioners; the CQC’s new single assessment framework; and the clinical, legal and insurance implications of the continuing rapid growth of AI in healthcare. This session covers three key topics:

  • Protecting the public: the new aesthetics licensing scheme: an overview of continuing progress towards the long-awaited regulation of the aesthetics sector. Why are we on this journey to regulation? Where have we got to? What can we expect to see in 2024 and 2025?

  • A CQC inspector calls: the new Single Assessment Framework: an overview of the Care Quality Commission - CQC’s new single assessment framework that will come into effect in 2024. The talk covers what the new framework is, how it differs from the previous regime, how the new scoring system will operate in practice, and what this means for independent sector practitioners

  • A brave new world: the rise and rise of AI in healthcare: An overview of the evolving clinical landscape of AI in Healthcare; identifying and managing risks of AI; regulation of AI; some key legal and insurance implications
