Scouts Nights Away - parental consent form

  • If your child is taking any medication, please provide details in the box above confirming dose, frequency, symptoms to be alleviated and if your child is self medicating or whether you prefer us to supervise administering it. Please note all medication should be suppled in a plastic container with lid with the original packaging and clear instructions on when and dosage.

    1989 Children Act : The medical profession takes the view that a parent’s consent to medical treatment cannot be delegated. This view is explicit in the Children Act 1989. Thus medical consent forms have no legal status and a doctor / nurse insisting on the consent of a parent to particular treatment has the right to do so. For this reason, you do not have to consent to the last criteria on this form (medical consent). At the same time it can be a comfort to medical staff to have general consent in advance from parents or to have a leader on hand able to sign forms required by the medical authorities.
Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
