Children and Consent to Medical Treatment

*Watch Online/In person*: How does the law consider children in cases involving medical consent? How should doctors (and parents) talk to children about illness. It will also consider what should happen when parents and doctors disagree about what a child should be told. The overall law on consent has changed markedly in England and Wales since Montgomery (2015), and requires doctors to share and explain risks, but it is not clear how far this applies to children, particularly older children.
