This text, written by practitioners and academics in the field, could be seen as an authoritative first point of reference for medical law practitioners. With references to primary sources and the secondary literature, this undertaking provides a comprehensive exposition of English medical law, from the organization of health care to the legal meaning of death. The book has been designed with the needs of the practitioner in mind while retaining a depth of analysis that should also find favour with an academic audience. The internal layout of the book has been specifically designed for ease of access, and will be kept up-to-date by way of annual cumulative supplements compiled by the general editors. The supplement brings the main work up-to-date to September 2000 and is included in the purchase price.
