Abstract

In Kathleen Jones v Royal Devon & Exeter NHS Foundation Trust, the claimant placed much significance on her choice of surgeon. Although the court rejected the claim that the operation was performed negligently, it was prepared to award damages for an infringement of the right to make an informed choice, with the patient's consent having been limited to a particular surgeon performing her surgery
