Abstract

Having previously discussed the legal principles of consent and refusal of treatment in previous articles (Cornock 2015a & 2015b), this article turns its attention to how a child can consent to treatment on their own behalf and whether a child has the ability to refuse treatment. It will also consider the role of the parent or guardian in the consent process. The article is based on the law of England and Wales.
