GOC Standards – changes effective 1 April 2016

We would like to draw member’s attention to a few changes which will take effect from April onwards.
1. Need to record patient consent on records for additional tests i.e. verbal consent given (vcg ) for any ‘extra’ tests like Perkins / dilated volk etc.
2. If there is delegation of any task i.e. pre screening there is a requirement to record who carried out the delegated task
3. Duty to be candid when things go wrong.
