Landmark medical judgment under the spotlight

12 Mar


THE landmark judgment by the Supreme Court on informed consent to medical treatment is almost three years old, and Montgomery v Lanarkshire Health Board continues to arouse discussion and debate.

The Faculty’s Lauren Sutherland, QC, was a member of the Montgomery legal team, and is the author of a new book, A Guide to Consent in Clinical Negligence Post-Montgomery. She will give a talk on the case at the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow on Tuesday, 13 March, at 6pm.

The free event will also feature a panel discussion and questions from the audience to “explore what aspects of informed consent in a post-Montgomery world most concern clinicians and advocates.”
