Halsbury’s Laws reissues volume on Medical Professions

In 2011 on October 4, 2011 at 9:19 am

A new volume of Halsbury’s Laws of England has been issued covering Medical Professions broadly defined to include the doctors, opticians, dentists, osteopaths, chiropractors,  pharmacists nurses, midwives and other professions regulated under the Health Professions Council. The statutory regime for professional regulation is set out in each case, and a chapter on general duties, liabilities and regulation covers the  law on a wide range of issues from consent and confidentiality to the  regulation of fertility services and the use of human tissue and organs.

Halsbury’s Laws of England is the longest established encyclopaedia of English law and began publishing in 1907. The new volume, for which HEAL member Jonathan Montgomery was consultant editor, is Vol 74 in the fifth edition. It is a standard reference work and can be found in many libraries both in the UK and internationally. It sets out to describe the law accurately and succinctly and is a reliable place to start research. It sticks closely to the text of legal materials and avoids speculating about interpretation.
