Human Rights and Healthcare looks at medical law from a human
rights perspective. Almost all issues traditionally taught under a
"medical law" label have significant human rights issues inherent
within them. This book is unique in bringing those human rights
implications to the fore. The rights at issue include established
fundamental rights such as the right to life; the right to respect
for a private life; and the right to physical integrity, as well as
more controversial "rights" such as a "right to reproduce" and a
"right to die." The human rights perspective of this book enables
new light to be cast upon familiar medico-legal cases and issues.
As such the book provides a genuine merging of human rights law and
medical law and will be of value to all students and academics
studying medical law, as well as to those interested in the broader
issues raised by the growing human rights culture within the UK and
