0 - 18 years : Guidance for all doctors
This guidance, which is for all doctors, develops the duties and principles set out in Good Medical Practice and in our other guidance focusing on children and young people from birth until their 18th birthday. This document may also be useful for children, young people, those with an interest in their care, and anyone else who wants to know what guidance doctors are given.
Protecting patients – your rights as lesbian, gay and bisexual people
Patients must be able to trust doctors with their lives and health. This includes lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) patients and their families. They have the same rights as anyone else to safe, effective, and appropriate care.
Consent : patients and doctors making decisions together
This guidance replaces the booklet Seeking patients’ consent: the ethical considerations (1998). It expands on the guidance in Good Medical Practice, which requires doctors to be satisfied that they have consent from a patient, or other valid authority, before undertaking any examination or investigation, providing treatment, or involving patients in teaching and research.
This guidance sets out the principles of confidentiality and respect for patients’ privacy that doctors are expected to understand and follow.
