Roy joined the University of Leicester in 2011 following the completion of a three-year research project in Queen Mary College, University of London. Roy’s primary interests are medical law, bioethics and socio-legal aspects of health care. In his recent research study, funded by the Nuffield Foundation, Roy examined the current legal status of the family in the medical decision-making process by conducting in-depth interviews with NHS clinicians, patients and their families. A resulting article has been recently published in the Medical Law Review, and a book, based on the study’s findings, will be published in 2012. Roy has already published a book and articles in a wide range of journals.
