Medical negligence actions retain a number of unique features that distinguish them from other personal injury actions. The health care system in the UK, the governance and training of doctors, nurses and other health professionals and the complexity of the evidence - these are some of the difficult areas over which the practitioner must have command.

Denis Carey has provided a distillation of these key features and set it within the context of the litigation process, in a book liberally illustrated with recent and fundamental cases.
