CONSULTANT OBSTETRICIANS needed to interview: The Montgomery v Lanarkshire Health ruling

Background: Hello, my name is Natalie Harrison and I am currently in my final year of a part-time MSc in International Health Policy at LSE (working full time as an Editor at The Lancet). For my dissertation I am working with Prof Elias Mossialos on an assessment of the 2015 Montgomery ruling, identifying any concerns it has raised among obstetricians and any questions that remain to be answered or issues that need clarification. This will be a qualitative study in which I aim to interview a handful of barristers and ~10 obstetricians about the new legislation. Before the interview, to form the basis of discussion, I will provide participants with a document summarising the key attitudes and issues raised so far (as identified by a search of the literature) in a bid to identify the main concerns. The interviews will be semi-structured to allow for unidentified themes to be added.


Needed: Consultant obstetricians to take part in an interview.


Details: The interviews will be done between 11 and 21 August and last between 30–45 mins. They can be conducted in person or over the phone and can be fully anonymised if preferred.


Please could you let me know by 9 August if you would be happy to take part by emailing me at
