Consent forms for transplantation in children and young people

Standardising what information is discussed with young people and families before transplant can be helpful. Anusha Edwards, on behalf of KAG PSG, has led on the development of consent forms 1 and 2 for transplantation in children and young people. Having been piloted in Bristol, with advice provided by their Trust solicitors, the consensus final versions were approved by KGS PSG in October. Jan Dudley presented these at our annual meeting and the RA trustees have endorsed these documents as examples of good practice.

They can be downloaded from our website by units who may wish to insert their own hospital logos for local use.
