Survey on Surgical Consent
Chris McKinnon, surgical trainee in Oxford, is investigating current UK practice in surgical consent. He says: "Since the Montgomery ruling in 2015, I have seen little change in consent practice in my local area and I am keen establish whether this is a reflection of wider surgical practice across the UK. There has been no such study to date and I think it would be an important indicator of whether surgical practice is keeping up with the recent changes in UK law."
The audit consists of a survey assessing local surgical consent practice and people’s understanding of the Montgomery ruling. It is targeted at all levels of trainee from FY1 to post-CCT fellows.
