Speaker: Joanna Glynn QC

“Recent and Prospective Changes in the Regulation of Health Professionals”

Followed by discussion and questions

Chaired by Kieran Coonan QC

ARDL is delighted to welcome Joanna Glynn QC, one of the pre-eminent QCs in the field
of healthcare regulation, to deliver the next in its regular seminar series. Joanna’s talk
will centre on the piecemeal evolution of the regulation of health professionals which
continues unabated. Joanna will provide an overview of recent developments, including
the GMC’s power to appeal relevant decisions and other changes affecting hearings
before the MPTS, the reform of the GDC’s investigation procedures and proposed
changes to the regulation of midwives. It will also consider the future more generally in
the light of the PSA’s paper “Rethinking Regulation” of August 2015 and the Ministerial
Statement of 17 December 2015.

The seminar will be followed by a panel discussion and there will be plenty opportunity for
questions from the audience. Refreshments will be served at the conclusion.

Joanna has practised in the field for many years. She teaches a course on the regulation
of health professionals at Queen Mary, University of London. She has written, with David
Gomez, two text books on the subject, published in 2005 and 2012, the latter entitled –
“The Regulation of Healthcare Professionals: Law, Principle and Process” (Sweet and
Maxwell). Profile:
