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 13 June 2013, talked with people who use the service and 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 from the records we looked at that when possible, people had been given different treatment options and there was evidence these had been discussed with them and they had understood the options available. People we spoke with told us that their treatment was always fully discussed with them. If people had to pay towards their treatment we saw they were given a written treatment plan that also detailed the charges.

We looked at six care records which included four adults and two children. They showed treatment had been discussed with the patient or parent, and consent had been sought.
