MPS factsheets are short guides to particular medicolegal issues. They provide essential and practical advice for doctors practising in the UK.
These factsheets provide only a general overview of the topic and should not be relied upon as definitive guidance. If you are an MPS member, and you are facing an ethical or legal dilemma, call 0845 605 4000 and ask to speak to a medicolegal adviser, who will give you specific advice. Alternatively, submit your medicolegal query online.
