Birth Rights Team
Join a panel of experts as we discuss and examine important aspects of informed consent in obstetrics. You will be guided through the history of consent, hear expert opinions from patient groups (Birthrights), patient experiences', and you will hear from the legal team of Guys and St Thomas’ hospital, London.
The UK Supreme Court (UKSC) judgment in Montgomery v Lanarkshire Health Board has closed the gap between ‘legal consent’, ‘informed consent' and the ‘best interest’ of the patient. The full judgment, the point of law decided and the rationale for the decision (ratio decidendi) of this important case concerning patient information, advice, and consent has recently started to filter through into clinical practice in commonwealth law jurisdictions. The Royal College of Surgeons, acting upon this judgment, has just issued new guidelines on patient consent in October 2016.
