Midnight Law release

21 August 2019

The Faculty is pleased to announce the release of a new series produced by our Legal & Ethical Policy Unit (LEPU) called Midnight Law.  Midnight Law aims to cover thorny legal issues in a one-page summary that you can access whenever and wherever an issue may arrive.  Please click on the links below to access the first three Midnight Laws:

Disagreement on Best Interests (England and NI)

Disagreement regarding the treatment of patients who lack capacity (Scotland)

Police Access to Critical Care Patients

We would like to continue expanding and developing the Midnight Law series. We already have some we are working on in draft but would welcome submissions from members, either as ideas or as drafts in Word for review by LEPU.
