Medical Negligence offers a comprehensive and authoritative examination of the potential legal responsibilities healthcare professionals and healthcare facilities may incur in the course of delivering medical services. While its primary focus is on the law of negligence in a medical context, the book also extensively covers topics such as consent for medical procedures, liability arising from defective products, patient confidentiality, hospital liabilities, legal defenses, limitation on liabilities, principles guiding damage assessments, and procedural aspects.

The new edition serves as an all-encompassing exposition of medical negligence law in England and Wales, with appropriate references to legal systems in Commonwealth jurisdictions. It is fully updated, incorporating discussions of pertinent statutory regulations and case law, including notable cases like Barclays Bank Plc v Various Claimants (2020) from the UK Supreme Court, Schembri v Marshall (2020) from the Court of Appeal, and Bell v Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust (2020), among others. It also delves into the evolving case law concerning the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and the emerging tort of misuse of private information.

The book provides a comprehensive reference to the professional guidelines issued by the General Medical Council, particularly those related to decision making and consent, last updated in 2020. Additionally, it includes appendices covering topics like NHS Indemnity, the Pre-Action Protocol for the Resolution of Clinical Disputes, and a glossary of medical terms.
