The governance of public hospitals raises a unique set of issues for parties on both sides of medical treatment liability claims. What to do when a claimant is also an active patient in the public health system? How to request medical documents? And how do common law and the Civil Liability Act defences interact in the most recent cases? Some of these points are canvassed in this practical session for lawyers acting for and against public health facilities in WA.

This seminar examines how government contracts differ from other species. Government contracts may walk, talk and quack like contracts, but they are the platypuses of the commercial world.
The seminar covers the following:

1. Defining government contracts
2. Three differences:
     - limits and discretions
     - objectives
     - scrutiny
3. Summary and conclusion
