The Society’s current president, Sir Robert Francis QC is best known for his chairmanship of the Mid Staffordshire NHS Trust Public Enquiry. He was installed on 11th October 2018 – our first meeting of the 2018-2019 season. His presidential address concerned the sad cases of Alfie Evans and Charlie Gard and whether withdrawal of treatment was in the best interests of such children. A full report will appear in the Medico-Legal Journal in due course.
