Before people are given any examination, care, treatment or support, they should be asked if they agree to it (outcome 2)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Where they are able, give valid consent to the examination, care, treatment and support they receive.
  • Understand and know how to change any decisions about examination, care, treatment and support that has been previously agreed.
  • Can be confident that their human rights are respected and taken into account.

How this check was done

We looked at the personal care or treatment records of people who use the service, carried out a visit on 27 August 2013, observed how people were being cared for and talked with people who use the service. We talked with staff.

Our judgement

Before people received any care or treatment they were asked for their consent and the provider acted in accordance with their wishes.

Reasons for our judgement

Before people received any care or treatment they were asked for their consent and the provider acted in accordance with their wishes. We saw that the service provided information to people so that they could make informed choices about their treatment. We looked at the records of 10 people and spoke with two people who used the service. We found that the doctor had documented that they had obtained the person’s consent before informing their GP of their treatment, or in some cases, provided a letter for people to take to their GP.
