All Patient related completed forms are kept with the Patient’s notes. Any changes to the form, made after the form has been signed by the Patient, are initialed and dated both by the Patient and the practitioner.
The consent policy as outlined in C2.2 is followed at all times. The consent policy requires the Patient’s signature, if they are not fit or do not have the capacity to give their own consent this must be given by a credible guardian or relative. The Registered Manager may decide not to proceed with any treatment and may recommend another form of treatment or refer them to another clinic.
