Consent a guide for young people

Before a doctor, a nurse, or anyone else looking after your health or providing care to you can examine or treat you or provide services for you, they need to ask for consent. That means they must ask for your agreement and usually the agreement of your parents as well. The reference to parents in this guide also includes legal guardians. This short leaflet explains what consent is and how it may affect you and your care.
