Alasdair Maclean examines the ethical basis for consent to medical treatment, arguing that consent should be approached in the context of the healthcare professional-patient relationship. Suggestions for reform are compared with the possible future development of the law if Neil Manson and Onora O'Neill's model of genuine consent is implemented.
