Medical Consent - Is the Law Out of Touch with Young People?

Tuesday, May 9, 2017

In medical circumstances, what does the law say about consent for children and young people? Has the law got it right and will the Montgomery judgement have a significant impact? 

Derek Willis, medical director of Severn Hospice, will be exploring these and other issues during a talk at Rowley's House on Friday 12 May at 1pm. 

Derek is also a lecturer in ethics at the UNESCO Centre at the University of Birmingham, where he gained an honours degree in Medicine. He then trained in palliative care and general practice before going on to do a Master's degree in Health Care Ethics; he was also GP to the Birmingham Royal Ballet. He has published widely in the areas of ethics, palliative care and primary care.
