Product description

Medical law and health care law in South Africa have become significantly more complex of late. There have been many recent legislative changes which have materially altered the law governing both the funding and delivery of health care as well as the general understanding of medical law in this country, and there are more such changes to come. For example, a complicating factor in the legislative arena is that, in terms of Schedule 4 of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, each of the nine provinces has legislative competence in the area of health services.
