The scope of the duty of care in clinical negligence

  • FOIL

This appeal concerned whether, in the context of a claim for clinical negligence, the court should follow the approach to ascertaining the scope of a defendant’s duty of care laid down in South Australia Asset Management Corpn v York Montague Ltd [1997] AC 191 (SAAMCO) and, if it should, how that approach was to be applied. It was one of two appeals heard by the same panel of seven justices examining the application of SAAMCO in different fields. A separate FOIL Update summarises the judgment Manchester Building Society v Grant Thornton UK LLP.
