Ampersand silk speaking at International webinar by Commonwealth Lawyers Association

Lauren Sutherland QC is honoured to be presenting at the Webinar arranged by the Commonwealth Lawyers Association on “Rationing Healthcare in Times of a Global Pandemic”. The event is taking place on 16th March at noon GMT and will be broadcast live on YouTube.

Many Commonwealth countries healthcare systems face unprecedented levels of demand. The media is reporting that many intensive care units are or are soon to be full. How does the law ration access to life saving healthcare and how do Commonwealth judges make such decisions? Is it even a question of law or is it really an ethical decision?
