Consent is at the heart of the relationship of trust between patient and Podiatrist. Before embarking on any examination or treatment, we must be satisfied that you as our patient, or somebody with authority to do so on your behalf, has given valid consent to the procedure we are about to undertake.
How it works
On your first appointment, as a new patient we will require your written consent (see below). For subsequent appointments, all we require is verbal consent to any treatment – “Yes, I am happy for you to cut my toenails” for example.
Your right to withdraw consent
Even though you have provided us with written or verbal consent prior to assessment or treatment, it is your legal right to withdraw it at any time without recourse.
