    Have your say on informed consent guidance

     The General Medical Council (GMC) has launched a review of their Consent Guidance.

    Good consent practice is at the heart of the doctor-patient relationship, and the guidance sets out good practice principles for making decisions about care, from the treatment of minor conditions to major interventions with significant risks or side effects.

    As part of the review, the GMC are inviting patients to share their experiences of discussing treatment and care with their doctors.

    They have set up a short online survey where patients can feedback on what is important to them. The responses will be used to help update the guidance and make sure it’s clear, relevant and helpful.

    You can find out more, and access the survey, on the GMC website. They survey is open until 19 March 2017.
