This new edition provides a readable, comprehensive and accessible account of the law governing health care in England and Wales. In contrast to other texts, it examines the full range of health care and not merely its medical context. The narrative is clear and succinct with full references to legal sources to meet the needs of law students and practitioners. However, excessive use of legal jargon is avoided ensuring that the law is also accessible to health care professionals. The text sets out the law on public health, the NHS, the health professions, clinical negligence litigation, patients' rights, and research and health care ethics.

Legislation changes and structural reforms since the previous edition have led to substantial revisions throughout the book including the workings of the General Medical Council, regulations on clinical trials and proposed reformation of the NHS complaints procedures.

  • Incorporates all new legislation and structural reforms including those affecting the General Medical Council, clinical trials and complaints procedures
  • New introductory chapter examining the scope and sources of health care law, and difficult morality issues
  • Online Resource Centre providing legislation updates and useful links
