Episode 10 of the Debrief podcast series sees Nigel Poole QC in conversation with Nadine Montgomery.

Montgomery v Lanarkshire Health Board is one of the most important clinical negligence judgments of the past 50 years. It confirmed that patient autonomy is sovereign over medical paternalism when it comes to consent to treatment. The Bolam test no longer governs what warnings and advice doctors should give their patients.

In Part II Nigel and Nadine discuss the ramifications of this landmark judgment.

The podcast is available here and can be streamed on the Kings Chambers channel on Spotify and iTunes.
