Due to the current tightening measures under Phase 2 as announced by the government, our deliveries will slightly be longer than normal. We hope for your understanding in these times.
The work of the coroner, even within the legal and medical professions, is not often well understood. Though the law on negligence relating to medical cases is well established, little or none has been written on the coroner’s practice in medical cases. Currently, there is little guidance available in Singapore for lawyers, doctors and other professionals who may become involved in the investigation of deaths where issues of medical mismanagement are raised. It is hoped that the publication of this book will fill the gap.
