Your 'free informed consent' is required before any medical procedure or treatment can be performed by a medical or healthcare practitioner. If you are being coerced by your employer to have any mandatory vaccination, please talk to us asap by simply filling in the contact form below.

Free Informed Consent

Informed consent by patients to medical treatment is internationally recognised and endorsed. At the heart of consent is the fundamental right of an individual to determine what is done, or what is not done, to one's body.

The expectation is that consent will be free and informed and may be withdrawn at any time and for any reason and cannot be given in circumstances where there is economic duress being applied to the patient.

Relevant Case Law

Every human being of adult years and sound mind has a right to determine what shall be done with his/her own body, and any treatment in the absence of consent will amount to trespass: Schloendorff v The Society of the New York Hospital (1914).

The Schloendorff principle is reflected in Australian law and adopted by the High Court of Australia in 'Marion's Case' (1992).
