Medical Witnesses at Inquests Act 1838

An Act passed by the New South Wales government on 13 June 1838 to provide for the attendance of Medical Witnesses at Coroners' Inquests and Inquiries held by Justices of the Peace. This allowed a coroner to summon the medical practitioner who had attended the death, or, if none had been present at the time, a qualified medical witness.
