    Abstract

    Explores the rules of disclosure of information to patients as determined by the test Lord Woolf set out in Pearce v United Bristol Healthcare NHS Trust. Considers whether the case introduces the prudent patient standard into English law. Discusses alternative approaches to the test together with the Court of Appeal's interpretation of the test in Wyatt v Curtis. Examines the relevance of empirical research in determining the standard of disclosure with reference to existing studies and those of the author. Includes a piece of empirical work intended as a basis for future research. © 2011 Sweet & Maxwell
