I'm hoping to study law in the UK so I can work in Derry/Londonderry. I've been doing a lot of reading on medical negligence and it's become a passion of mine. A family member suffered due to birth negligence and I want to fight to make sure that this doesn't happen to anyone else.

I've been reading sources like the below, can anyone recommend some more?

Medical law: a very short introduction

This is one of my favourite law book series and this one in particular was a great insight!

Medical negligence is a very interesting area! I was unlucky to have an optional course on this dropped because of covid. However, here are some thinks you may enjoy thinking/reading about.

Negligence is a tort (a civil wrong, an obligation you owe to other people even if you haven't expressly agreed to it.) Think about what negligence itself means, what are it's elements? and why is medical negligence especially challenging?

Here are some cases you might want to check out to understand some of the principles of medical negligence. Btw case reading is a skill you build over time! Don't worry if its hard at first. Just have a glance at them on BAILII (a free public online case directory, you will use westlaw or lexis when you begin studying).
- Chatterton v. Gerson [1981] QB 432
- R (Tracey) v Cambridge UH NHSFT [2014] EWCA Civ 822.

Keep being curious! I wish I could tell you more, I miss that module

Thanks for that. I find that the issue in High Court cases in Ireland can be very varying. Particularly in relation to who is to blame.
