chapter  1
Medical Negligence
Pages 16

COMMENTARY The examiner has gone for a short and to the point question here. Remember to look carefully at the wording of the question. Notice that we are asked to assess the test. So it is not just a question of defining it – candidates are required to discuss and analyse it. Notice too that we are asked to assess the Bolam test and not the whole of the law of medical negligence. So keep focused on the question asked.
