This new edition provides a readable, comprehensive and accessible account of the law governing health care in England and Wales. In contrast to other texts, it examines the full range of health care and not merely its medical context. The narrative is clear and succinct with full referencesto legal sources to meet the needs of law students and practitioners. However, excessive use of legal jargon is avoided ensuring that the law is also accessible to health care professionals. The text sets out the law on public health, the NHS, the health professions, clinical negligence litigation,patients' rights, and research and health care ethics. Legislation changes and structural reforms since the previous edition have led to substantial revisions throughout the book including the workings of the General Medical Council, regulations on clinical trials and proposed reformation of the NHS complaints procedures.

Editorial Reviews

`'He clarifies the complexity of legislation, case-law, and quasi-law affecting the National Health Service. He describes and discusses with refreshing lucidity the range of areas traditionally covered in medical law texts..."Health Care Law" maps the terrain and trends well. It is thorough,informed, and wide-ranging presentation and commentary on most aspects of English law regarding health care and medicine. Montgomery achieves his objective of explaining the law clearly to an intended audience of lawyers, and students or practitioners of medicine and other health-care professions.''The Lancet
