Medical confidentiality has long been recognised as a core element of medical ethics, with areas currently under debate including the use of patient-identifiable data in research, information sharing across public services, and the implications of advances in genetics. Bringing fresh insights to oft-cited cases and demonstrating a better understanding of the boundaries of medical confidentiality, the book discusses the role of important interest groups such as the judiciary, Ministry of Health and professional medical bodies. It is directly relevant to people working or studying in the field of medical law as well as those with an interest in the interaction of law, medicine and ethics.
