This clear, concise and non-technical guide to medical law is valued by doctors and other health professionals who have little time or the legal background to read detailed books on medical law. Law for Doctors focusses on aspects of English law that are particularly relevant to medical practice such as civil claims, legal procedures, funding, complaints, whistle-blowing, disciplinary proceedings, coroners' courts and criminal law. Particular features of this book include:

- A concise, clear and non-technical account of how the law impinges on clinical practice
- Short case summaries providing the background to legal decisions
- Updated sources of legal information
- Glossary of legal terms and abbreviations
- Easy access to specific points through detailed index, contents list and chapter subheadings.

This third edition includes recent case law and statutory developments important for medical professionals. New sections on the role of policy considerations in judicial decision-making, inexperienced staff issues and coroners and the Human Rights Act are also included. This book will appeal to all clinical and managerial staff, and students, who are involved in the delivery of health care.

The author has considerable experience of legal practice within the health care setting. John Paul Garside is currently Solicitor of the Supreme Court of England and Wales, and Head of Legal Services at Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.
