Before surgery is performed it is a legal obligation for surgeons to provide sufficient and appropriate advice to patients about the risks, side effects and alternative treatments as each patient has individual circumstances.

Enough time should be given for the patient to think about the surgery before signing so they are fully informed to properly consent to the procedure.

If things go wrong and the consent was flawed the surgeon or clinic could be liable for their injuries or any harm caused by the surgery or procedure.
