Safeguarding children leaflets

Consent to treatment

Before a doctor, nurse or therapist can examine or treat your child, they need consent or agreement.
Sometimes children can give consent for themselves, depending on their age and how well they understand.
Sometimes you will be asked to give consent for them as their parent.


Due to the length of this leaflet it is available as a digital download only.
