When a consultant, nurse, or therapist asks you to agree to any form of examination or treatment, it is your choice whether to go ahead or not. It is quite acceptable for you to say no or ask for more information. Your consent is essential.
When having any operation, we ask you to sign a consent form to show that you agree to the procedure and fully understand what will happen. The consent form is available in Arabic and English, and interpreters are available when required. Please feel free to ask as many questions as you need to fully understand the procedure.
