Following the decision of the Supreme Court in McCulloch v Forth Valley Health Board the time seems right to consider (or reconsider) the principles underlying consent to treatment.

The extent to which the law requires clinicians to adopt an approach to management following the guidance in Montgomery remains unclear presenting practical problems.

The Seminar will include discussion of the law and its implications for clinicians.
