Medical Law: Text, Cases, and Materials offers exactly what the title says - all of the explanation, commentary, and extracts from cases and key materials that students need to gain a thorough understanding of this complex topic. Key case extracts provide the legal context, facts, and background; extracts from materials, including from the most ground-breaking writers of today, provide differing ethical perspectives and outline current debates; and the author's insightful commentary ensures that readers understand the facts of the cases and can navigate the ethical landscape to form their own understanding of medical law. Chapters cover all of the topics commonly found on medical law courses, including a separate chapter on mental health law.

This new edition, thoroughly updated, includes:

  • Coverage of important new cases in all chapters, including Rabone v Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust and Purdy v DPP.
  • Coverage of the reorganisation of commissioning in the NHS as a result of the Health and Social Care Act 2012.
  • Greater and more in-depth coverage of the role of 'fitness to practise' panels in regulating the medical profession.
