This is an important legal topic. I don't like redirecting it to a category, but it really needs some work.Mneumisi 20:31, 20 December 2006 (UTC)


Health legislation appears to be basically the same page, just written by someone else. I think that they should be merged into a single page. WhatamIdoing (talk) 23:51, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

Health legislation is where much of our health law comes from, but it is a separate, related subject. The law-making process is what legislation focusses on, while health law focusses on existing legal and ethical rules affecting health care, medical training, and many other subjects that have nothing directly to do with health legislation. Health law comes not just from legislation but from court decisions, from common law, and from administrative/governmental rule-making. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:06, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
