Doctor in the House: When Can Doctors Speak Up In The Interest of Public Health?

Doctors don’t just treat patients, but they also hold important roles in educating the public when it comes to their health and safety. However, a recent case where a doctor was involved in a defamation suit for comments she made on social media has brought the issue of defamation of doctors to the forefront. What can or can’t doctors say in the interest of public health? Medical legal lawyer Dhinesh Bhaskaran joins consultant urologist Dr George Lee to discuss where to draw the line and what this means for both doctors and the public alike.
