Support needs assessment - consent
If you decide to request a full assessment from us, a support coordinator will check whether you:
- understand why all this information about you is being discussed and recorded
- agree to this (give consent)
- agree for information about you to be shared with other people who may need to know in order to provide care and support to keep you independent and well
For more information about this, please see the social care record guarantee.
For people who are not able to understand and give consent, then the decision to go ahead will be made with people who know them, based on whether it is thought to be in the person's best interests.
