Darnley v Croydon Health Services NHS Trust
- Discusses the ruling in Darnley v Croydon Health Services NHS Trust (CA) on whether a NHS trust's failure to triage a patient with a head injury within 15 minutes breached its duty of care, and whether the duty included providing patients with accurate information about waiting times in accident and emergency. Argues that the case involved the breach element of a negligence action, and suggests how the court should have approached it.
