    In recent years, debates have arisen concerning the encroachment of the criminal process in regulating fatal medical error, the implementation of the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007 and the recent release of the Director of Public Prosecution's assisted suicide policy. Consequently, questions have been raised regarding the extent to which such intervention helps, or if it in fact hinders, the sustained development of medical practice. In this collection, Danielle Griffiths and Andrew Sanders explore the operation of the criminal process in healthcare in the UK as well as in other jurisdictions, including the USA, Australia, New Zealand, France and the Netherlands. Using evidence from previous cases alongside empirical data, each essay engages the reader with the debate surrounding what the appropriate role of the criminal process in healthcare should be and aims to clarify and shape policy and legislation in this under-researched area.

    Danielle Griffiths is a research fellow at the University of Manchester.

    Andrew Sanders is emeritus Professor of English at the University of Durham. He has written four substantial studies of Dickens and is widely published in Victorian literature and culture, also having edited and annotated paperback editions of Dombey and Son, David Copperfield, Bleak House and A Tale of Two Cities. He is a past President of the Dickens Fellowship and a Trustee of the Charles Dickens Museum.
