Bolam v. Friern Hospital Management Committee

Facts and Judgment
 "a medical professional is not guilty of negligence if he has acted in accordance with a practice accepted as proper by a responsible body of medical men skilled in that particular art . . . Putting it the other way round, a man is not negligent, if he is acting in accordance with such a practice, merely because there is a body of opinion who would take a contrary view."  Back to lecture outline on breach of duty in negligence
