National radiotherapy consent forms

The RCR has enhanced and extended its award-winning series of national site-specific radiotherapy consent forms. The forms are intended to support clinicians in ensuring all patients are fully informed when consenting to radiotherapy.

All existing consent forms have had the design and layout updated to improve usability for both clinicians and patients in response to feedback from the RCR radiotherapy consent form survey. Side effect information has been streamlined where possible. 

Six new forms have also been developed with input from site-speciality experts and patient groups to cover lymphoma, palliative, gynaecologic cancer and pancreas.

This project is currently being led by RCR Clinical Fellows, Siobhan Morrison and Nishanthi Silva. A full list of those involved are in our project acknowledgements.

If you have any questions about the forms, please check out our FAQs document. You can also contact the Professional Services team if you have any further comments or questions.

    There are many reasons that a national standard site-specific consent form would assist clinicians and patients alike. Read our supporting documents for further information on the development and implementation of the radiotherapy consent forms:
