Respect for Parental Healthcare Decisions

Support | Promote | Educate

Consent was established in 2018 in response to growing demand from parents who feel their healthcare decisions are not being respected by professionals. Parents should be able to make reasonable choices without pressure from doctors or unnecessary state intervention. We are here to:


educate parents and medical professionals on law, policy, professional standards and best practice relating to parental rights and informed consent in the care and treatment of children


provide support to parents in making decisions relating to their child’s care and treatment


promote understanding of parental rights and informed consent between medical staff, social workers, parents and other relevant persons

H’s son, N, is 15 and attends a state secondary school. His case exemplifies all that can go wrong with the way Covid vaccines are administered in UK schools. From non-existent competent assessments to ignorance of any medical conditions or allergies.

H knew what she was doing when she refused consent for N having the Covid-19 vaccine. Not only did she make a reasonable and rational risk-benefit decision that would apply to most healthy children, her son also has allergies and an auto-immune disorder and carries an epipen. H wanted N’s consultant to carry out a personalised risk assessment.
