Sarabjit Singh QC examines whether “Unlicensed but safe, drugs can be recommended on the grounds of its lower costs” with specific reference to the case of Bayer Plc v NHS Darlington Clinical Commissioning Group [2020] EWCA Civ 449 and the implication for COVID-19 medical treatment. (pg. 20)

Robert Kellar QC asks: “Vicarious liability: where are we now?” Although Barclays Bank v Various Claimants [2020] UKSC 13 is not a clinical negligence case, it could impact on claims against private healthcare providers. (pg. 38)

Dominic Ruck Keene discusses “The Possible impact of COVID-19 on clinical negligence litigation”, highlighting the  difficulties practitioners may encounter in a range of possible claims. (pg. 4)
