All Wales Model Policy for Consent to Examination and Treatment

The NHS All Wales Consent to Treatment Group has updated the NHS Wales Model Policy for Consent to Examination or Treatment. This work builds on the Welsh Health Circular - Guide to Consent for Examination or Treatment – revised Guidance issued in July 2017, which sets out the legal framework and ensures a consistent approach across Wales.

All Welsh health bodies should review any local policies to ensure they are consistent with the updated NHS Wales Model policy and the revised Guidance.
