The fifth edition of Clinical Negligence continues to provide the most comprehensive and authoritative guidance on all aspects of clinical negligence claims, from bringing an action for damages to presenting expert evidence in court, with detailed consideration of funding and cost implications.

The work maintains its two-part structure. The first part set out in 17 chapters deals with legal aspects of medical malpractice, including complaints procedures, poor performance and medical professional governance, preparation of medical evidence, settlements and trial; with a further 25 chapters in the second part covering the risks associated with particular areas of specialist medical practice.

Key developments covered in the fifth edition include:

  • Causation in clinical negligence: Bailey v MoD (Court of Appeal 2008);
  • GMC regulatory changes as a result of secondary legislation amendments to the Medical Act 1983;
  • Costs and funding as a result of the changes brought about by the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012.
