Abstract

In this edition of the Denning Law Journal we are celebrating the 800 years of the Magna Carta, but compared to some declarations the Magna Carta is a mere fledgling. Those with knowledge of the medical profession will be well versed in the Hippocratic Oath, which garnered a fundamental role in medical training during the Hellenic period. In more recent years, the Hippocratic Oath has been revitalised in the form of the Declaration of Geneva, and is still used as part of medical training today. Over time the Oath has been modified to adopt a more progressive stance, nevertheless in one key ethical principle remains untouched, that of confidentiality.
