R (Takoushis) v HM Coroner for Inner North London (2005) EWCA Civ 1440

From Mental Health Law Online

Jump to: navigation, search

Where a person dies as a result of what is arguably medical negligence in an NHS hospital, the state must have a system which provides for the practical and effective investigation of the facts and for the determination of civil liability. Unlike in the cases of death in custody, the system does not have to provide for an investigation initiated by the state but may include such an investigation. The present system complied with Article 2. Inquest verdict quashed and new inquest ordered.
