Reported judgments involving medical treatment of children

In a very helpful development anyone either interested in or involved in cases involving the medical treatment of children, Professor Jo Bridgeman has persuaded her publishers to allow her to put online, and keep updated, a table of reported judgments which originally appeared as an appendix to her excellent book, Medical Treatment of Children and the Law: Beyond Parental Responsibilities. The table lists all reported cases concerning the medical treatment of children from the first case of Re D in 1976 and is updated monthly. In addition to the case citation and judge, the table includes: age and medical condition of the child, the treatment at issue, the process by which the case was referred to court, the decision of the court and identifies important issues raised by the case.

If you identify cases concerning the medical treatment of children that you think should be included, please email Jo Bridgeman:
