Clinical Negligence (Bloomsbury Professional) is written by a team of 77 legal and medical experts and provides authoritative guidance on all aspects of clinical negligence claims, from bringing an action for damages to presenting expert evidence in court. While Part 1 provides comprehensive coverage of the practical legal aspects of negligence actions, Part II provides expert accounts of the risks and standards of practice associated with 22 different areas of clinical practice. A hugely valuable book for both lawyers and clinical practitioners, Clinical Risk said that "It is difficult to see how any serious practitioner can afford to be without this unique book".
This edition provides an in-depth analysis of current issues, covering important judicial decisions such as Gregg v Scott and Thompstone v Glossop; the NHS Redress Act 2006 on compensation for clinical negligence in hospital settings and proposals for coroners’ and medical professional regulation. The online version includes the content from the CD ROM that accompanies the hard copy of this book.
