R v MAXINE TURBILL : R v GAIL JULIE BROADWAY (2013)
PUBLISHED July 12, 2013
 EWCA Crim 1422
The offence of wilful neglect required something more than a reckless breach of duty. A judge's use of "reckless" and "careless" in his summing up for an offence of wilfully neglecting a care home patient had not sufficiently described to the jury the elements of the offence.
