FEED YOUR MIND AT LUNCH TIME: Why the courts are as important as hospitals to the nation’s health


Darwin Lecture theatre | Darwin Building (link Map)
access via Malet Place | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom

Speaker information

Professor Dame Hazel Genn

Professor Genn will focus on the critical ways in which courts support society and the economy and on how they have directly improved standards of medicine practice and health care. She will also discuss new evidence about the link between access to justice and health and consider whether much of what turns up in doctors’ surgeries (including requests for anti-depressants) are in fact the results of an inability to access the courts.
