When a specimen of blood or urine was required from a patient in a hospital for a drink-driving offence and the attending police officer knew of a potential medical reason why a specimen might not be authorised, the officer had to inform the medical practitioner in charge of the patient of that reason before the practitioner authorised the taking of a sample.
