Please note any damage to Group Equipment caused by or in part by your Scout WILL BE CHARGED. By signing you agree to this. I understand that the Event Leader reserves the right to send any participants home if necessary.  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 Leader in charge of the camp to sign any document required by the hospital authorities.
Signature of Parent/Carer: …………………………………….  Date: …………………………
Note: The medical profession takes the view that the parent’s consent to medical treatment cannot be delegated. This view is explicit in the Children Act 1989. Thus, medical consent forms have no legal status and a doctor or 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.
