No defence?: perceptions about five doctors accused of killing a patient (1957-2009)

JUNE JONES, Andrew Shanks

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Recent studies into the experiences and failures of health care services, along with the rapid development of patient advocacy, consumerism and pressure groups have led historians and social scientists to engage with the issue of the medical complaint. As expressions of dissatisfaction, disquiet and failings in service provision, past complaining is a vital antidote to progressive histories of health care. This book explores what has happened historically when medicine generated complaints.
