Justin Valentine, a member of our Clinical Negligence team has recently contributed an article on the impact of the landmark case of Montgomery v Lanarkshire Health Board to the case of C v County Durham & Darlington NHS Foundation Trust, where he represented the claimant, for AvMA Lawyers Service November newsletter.

Justin examines a variation of the Montgomery principle – the case was based on the failure to inform the patient/claimant of a diagnosis of Crohn’s Disease due to poor systems operating at the trust, it looks at what the reasonable patient would expect to be told and the significance of the information withheld.
