If the patient cannot give consent for themselves, because of their age or condition, you must always check with a relative or a senior member of staff. If the patient or relative has not agreed to what you plan to do, you must not do it. Always check with a senior member of staff if you are in any doubt. Health and social care professionals and parents will not always agree on what is best for a child. Usually, when parents refuse treatment or
care for their child, this will prevent the proposed action going ahead.
However, if you and your colleagues believe that it is crucial for the
child to have the treatment or care in question (for example if the child
would die, or suffer serious permanent injury without it or would suffer
or be likely to suffer significant harm), then the courts can be asked to
decide what is in the child’s best interests. Applications to court can be
made at short notice if necessary. If the emergency is such that there
is no time to apply to court, any doubts should be resolved in favour
of the preservation of life.
