What is Patient Consent? When a patient attends a doctor or consultant the issue of consent is extremely important. A patient’s consent for medical treatment is only valid if it covers the relevant treatment, it is given voluntarily and the patient has capacity to do so. In addition a patient must be informed appropriately about the procedure before consenting. Without such consent any treatment that takes place could potentially be the tort of battery and trespass. In Clinical Negligence claims this could also involve an allegation that the GP or consultant was negligent as they failed to obtain the necessary consent.
