Landmark Result for The British Medical Association

We supported the British Medical Association (“BMA”) in their intervention in McCulloch v Forth Valley Health Board [2023] UKSC 26, a recent case heard at the Supreme Court. Our lawyers Tod Davies, Tom Jones, and Ellis Cumming supported the BMA throughout the process and are incredibly pleased with this landmark result. The case revolves around striking a balance between a patient’s right to make an informed choice in the medical treatment they receive, and how much information on alternative treatment options a doctor needs to give.

Both the BMA and Capital Law are delighted with this result, which eases the burden on doctors in their day-to-day activities.
