Clinical Negligence and Risk is a new edition of the highly successful Medical Negligence and Clinical Risk 1998 - Trends and Developments. The new title provides an extensive overview of the law of clinical negligence, set against the background of the Civil Procedure Rules (CPR) and institutional changes in healthcare delivery. Clinical Negligence & Risk is a practical source of information that makes reference to case law development and medical malpractice scandals, including Bristol Paediatric Heart Surgery cases.

The author of both editions, Vivienne Harpwood, is a qualified barrister, currently lecturing in law at Cardiff University. Vivienne is a regular speaker at healthcare and medical legal events, and is also the editor of Health Law for Healthcare Professionals and Medical Law Monitor newsletters.
