R v Richardson [1998]

Facts

  • The patient of a dentist consented to a minor operation, and the battery associated with it
  • The dentist was not authorised to practice

Issue

  • Was consent vitiated by the lack of authorisation?

Decision

  • No

Reasoning

  • The non-authorisation was merely an attribute of the dentist and was not fundamental to operation
  • The dentist still acted with reasonable care
