If a student is in doubt whether they should be attending an operation (due to uncertainty regarding consent having been sought, or due to the sensitivity of the operation) then they should discuss the situation with the surgeon or nurse in charge of the case in theatre. In addition, currently consent forms vary between hospitals with some forms incorporating the presence of students - students should make themselves acquainted with the contents of their local consent form.
