When establishing a claim in negligence, regarding the first hurdle, duty of care, which test should we apply - the Donoghue v Stevenson or Caparo?
Or if the relationship obviously entails a duty of care (eg doctor and patient) do we need to apply a test at all?

Many thanks!

You don't need to apply a test for established duty relationships such as doctor - patient, driver - pedestrian etc.
if you're unsure run through the Caparo test but cite Donoghue when mentioning the neighbour principle.
