This book is a highly accessible map of medical law. It starts with the law relating to pre-birth issues and then moves through the law of consent, confidentiality and clinical negligence to the law of death - including end of life decision-making and the law relating to the ownership of body parts.
It looks critically at all the cases that have made law and headlines in recent years, and demystifies the subject by identifying the small number of prinicples which have made the judges decide as they have.
