  • Once people knew that I was studying for an LLM in medical law and ethics I was asked to present to a number of different teams within hospitals, especially about consent. Since becoming a consultant I have been requested to contribute to a number of different projects largely because of my LLM, examples being an end of life group and a patient safety group.

  • Incredibly useful course. The programme is very current and relevant to my work. I wish I had done it ages ago!
