Emily Dugan, 'Woman with learning difficulties will be forcibly checked for possible cancer, judge rules' (Independent, 6/8/13)
(Redirected from Re K (cancer) (2013) MHLO 83 (COP))
Hysteroscopy (1) It was suspected that K had cancer of the womb, but she was took frightened to undergo an diagnostic examination. (2) Moylan J decided that (a) K lacked capacity to take decisions about medical treatment; (b) it was in her best interests to undergo a hysteroscopy, which is more detailed and invasive than the normal ultrasound, on the basis that her fear meant she would be under general anaesthetic anyway.
This was originally on MHLO on the case database as "Re K (cancer)  MHLO 83 (COP)" but as I never found the transcript the press article was added to the resources database instead.
