A practical introduction to English law in relation to medical practice, this text seeks to provide doctors, medical students and other healthcare workers with enough legal information to help them in practice, especially if they become involved in a claim or court case. The author assumes only prior knowledge of medical student level and little or no understanding of the legal system/processes.
