The Medical Protection Society (MPS) welcomes the opportunity to respond to the General Medical Council’s (GMC) survey on its Consent guidance. On a daily basis, MPS’s expert medico-legal advisers support doctors with a wide range of legal and ethical problems that arise from professional practice. Questions around patient consent are a regular occurrence on our member advice line and the GMC’s guidance on consent is a very important document for the profession.
