|Title:||Doctors, the Duty to Rescue: and the Ambulance Service||Contributor(s):||Eburn, Michael E (author)||Publication Date:||1999||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/3203||Abstract:||The 'Emergency Medicine Quiz' that appeared in the June 1999 edition of 'Current Therapeutics' raised the issue of whether a doctor, who encounters a cyclist who has been struck by a car and is being attended by ambulance officers near the doctor's surgery, is legally obliged to offer their assistance. This article will consider the legal duties that may be imposed on doctors in this scenario and will conclude, perhaps rather unsatisfactorily, that the legal answer is not clear.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Current Therapeutics, 40(10), p. 92-95||Publisher:||Adis International Pty Ltd||Place of Publication:||Seaforth, Australia||ISSN:||0311-905X||Field of Research (FOR):||180126 Tort Law
