R v Richardson 
- The patient of a dentist consented to a minor operation, and the battery associated with it
- The dentist was not authorised to practice
- Was consent vitiated by the lack of authorisation?
- The non-authorisation was merely an attribute of the dentist and was not fundamental to operation
- The dentist still acted with reasonable care
