The interplay between the health caring professions and the public has been mainly dominated by wide-ranging changes in the administration of the National Health Service and of the professions themselves. This edition focuses on this field.
This new edition of "Law and Medical Ethics" continues to chart the ever-widening field that the topics cover. The interplay between the health caring professions and the public during the period intervening since the last edition has, perhaps, been mainly dominated by wide-ranging changes in the administration of the National Health Service and of the professions themselves but these have been paralleled by important developments in medical jurisprudence.
