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 19 February 2013, observed how people were being cared for and talked with people who use the service. We talked with staff.

Our judgement

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

Reasons for our judgement

We saw that patients signed a consent form before their treatment started, and if following an examination further treatment was required, the patient signed a consent form for this further treatment.

We saw several examples of consent forms that had been signed by patients.

We asked both patients that we spoke with if they consented to their treatment. Both patients said that they provided written consent before any treatment started, and they also gave verbal consent during their treatment.
