Unless you are unconscious and need to undergo a life-saving procedure, or you are otherwise incapable of giving consent, then medical professionals have to have your permission in both a voluntary sense (the decision to be treated was yours and yours alone), and an informed sense (you were given information that allowed you to understand the procedure fully).
If you or a loved one received medical treatment without giving consent then you may be entitled to compensation. Medical professionals need your permission whether it is a blood test or a major operation. Contact us, and we can help establish whether you are entitled to claim.
