The Legal Talks conducted by DraftCraft International under the initiative 'Health And The Law' are only informative in nature and delivered 'Without Prejudice'. Participants must obtain a legal opinion in writing before relying on any advice or to furnish it as an 'exhibit' or supportive document in a legal process. Legal Talks are held regularly in Mumbai to discuss pertinent Medico-Legal issues and laws. The talks are conducted by Solicitor Gajanan Khergamker.

IN FOCUS: Doctors Legally Bound to Inform About Side-Effects*
Most medical doctors simply refuse to ask a patient's history or inform him/her of the side effects of a treatment embarked upon. This is a gross deficiency in service and qualifies as a ground for compensation or redress at a Consumer Forum should a patient suffer as a consequence. A lot of medicines have side effects that affect patients and their decision to take them should be 'informed'. Depriving a patient of information of side-effects is illegal by law.

* A fresh issue is chosen regularly for discussion, so keep watching this space or follow us on Facebook and Twitter for changes and new topics of discussion.
