In the extensively revised and updated fourth edition of this highly acclaimed textbook, Margaret Brazier and Emma Cave examine the regulation of medicine, the rights of patients and responsibilities of doctors and legal remedies. The book covers a diverse range of fields from research on embryos to clinical negligence, cloning to euthanasia.

The text charts recent developments in the law including reform of the General Medical Council, legislation such as the Human Tissue Act 2004, Mental Capacity Act 2005 and the NHS Redress Act 2006 and proposals to reform the law. The clear and concise style makes the book accessible to the lay person as well as to legal professionals, students and medical practitioners.
