Information for Consultees (England & Wales)

If a potential participant (patient) in England and Wales is identified as lacking capacity to provide consent for themselves at the time a decision or action needs to be taken, reasonable steps will be taken to seek an opinion from a Personal Consultee (e.g. their partner, or a particular friend or carer who is not seeking renumeration for doing so or acting in a professional capacity), as per the Mental Capacity Act 2005. If reasonable steps to contact a Personal Consultee fail, then a Nominated Consultee (e.g. an independent person appointed by the site Principal Investigator) will be approached to advise the research team about the participation of the person who lacks capacity.

NB: For adults with incapacity in Scotland: please see the appropriate information page, by clicking “here”.

Displayed below are Information Sheets for Consultees (in England and Wales) who are interested in finding out more about the study.

You (‘the Consultee’) should first read the ‘Summary Consultee Information Sheet’. If you are interested to know more, and when it is feasible, you should read the appropriate ‘Detailed Information Sheet’ (i.e. for either a ‘Personal Consultee’ or a ‘Nominated Consultee’). If preferred, you can download the information sheet(s) by clicking on the ‘Download’ option that is underneath each display.

If there are any parts of the information sheet(s) that you do not understand, or if you would like further information, you can speak with a member of your local participating hospital (site) research team. Alternatively, you can contact the RELIEF Central Study Office; see contact information, “here”.
