We are pleased to announce that a book to which Pritesh Rathod has contributed entitled Clinical Guidelines and the Law of Medical Negligence: Multidisciplinary and International Perspectives has been published by Edward Elgar Publishing.

The book is the culmination of many years’ research by Dr Jo and Professor Ash Samanta into the extent to which clinical guidelines can inform or stand as a proxy for the standard of care in clinical negligence litigation.  The publication is a long-awaited multidisciplinary discussion on the subject between legal and medical professionals and academics.  Pritesh’s chapter sets out his views on the use of clinical guidelines from his experience as a barrister practising in the field of clinical negligence over the past 14 years.

It is likely to be of interest to both lawyers and medical experts who carry out medico-legal work.  Further details can be found here.
