Gross negligence manslaughter: Medical practitioner

The Queen v Rudling [2016] EWCA Crim 741 provides an appellate consideration flowing from a trial judge’s order the close of the prosecution case that the respondent medical practitioner had no case to answer,  on the manslaughter allegation.

The trial judge did not make a similar order in relation to a charge alleging the doing of an act in relation to the medical record tending and intended to pervert the course of justice.

The Court of Appeal refused the Crown’s application for leave to appeal.
