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 I of the podcast Nadine talks to Nigel about her experience of making a complaint, starting legal proceedings and her fight all the way to the Supreme Court. In Part II they discuss the ramifications of this landmark judgment.
