Serjeants’ Inn barristers provide legal advice to help launch the UK’s first standardised site-specific consent forms for adult cancer patients undergoing radiotherapy

11th May 2021

Michael Mylonas QC, Richard Partridge and Ranald Davidson provided pro bono legal advice to the Royal College of Radiologists as they worked to create a pioneering series of new patient consent forms.

Launched on the 4th of May, the standardised forms are for recording a patient’s informed agreement to radiotherapy treatment, and relevant treatment information, after they have decided on a regime with their cancer team. They have been designed to provide consistent and relevant information on treatment and side-effects, but still be adaptable for individual patients.
