Please print out and sign this form, then return to your leader.
I give my written consent for the camp staff, their appointee, activity providers or the unit / group leader to sign on my behalf any form of written consent for medical treatment if the delay to obtain my signature would be inadvisable by the doctor or surgeon concerned.
We will make every effort to contact you in the event of your child becoming ill or being injured at Splash Camp irrespective of whether or not it is an emergency and will try to ensure you are kept informed of any need for medical treatment.
The medical professions take the view that parent's consent to medical treatment cannot be delegated. The view is explicit in the Children's Act 1989. Thus medical consent forms have no legal status and a doctor / nurse insisting upon a parent signing to a particular treatment has the right to do so. For this reason we do not insist upon a parent signing the above consent, however, it can be a great comfort to medical staff to have general consent forms required by the medical authorities.
