PERMISSION TO ATTEND THE CAMP

to attend the Camp/ Holiday at Pinsent…...............................................

from …14th August 2011..to …19th August 2011…..…..No. of  days …..5.... nights.......

under the Leadership of Adrianne Phillips plus other Adult Assistants.

 

The named cub is taking Medicine, which will be handed to Adrianne with full instructions and clearly labelled.          Yes/No

If it becomes necessary for my child to receive medical treatment and I cannot be contacted by telephone or any other means to authorise this, I hereby give my general consent to any necessary medical treatment and authorise the Scouter in charge of the camp to sign any document required by the hospital authorities.

Note: The medical profession takes the view that the parent’s consent to medical treatment cannot be delegated. This view is explicit in the Child Act 1989. Thus medical consent forms have no legal status and a doctor/nurse insisting on the consent of a parent to a particular treatment has the right to do so. For this reason we do not recommend that Leaders insist on parents signing the statement above. However, it can be a comfort to medical staff to have general consent in advance from parents or to have a Leader on hand able to sign forms required by medical authorities. The Scout Association Jan 2000.
