Come and listen to Ms Kuah Boon Theng, Director of Legal Clinic LLC talk about the new test for negligence, which involves seeing whether there is material information about the patient that the doctor should know and if the doctor is aware of this information.  The test also considers whether a doctor is justified in withholding such information, including in emergencies or when giving the information would cause more harm.

Previously, Singapore's courts had used only the oft-cited Bolam test, which states that a doctor is not negligent if his actions could be supported by other doctors.
