In addition, there may be further items that you wish to include when planning activities such as residential experiences, such as paracetamol or other painkillers, for which you should seek parental consent. A good way of doing this is to provide a list of medication (including the name, what it is used for, the brand etc.) with a tick box for the parent/guardian to indicate if they are happy for the young person to receive the medication. The parents/guardian’s signature should be provided to state that the information provided is accurate. An example is shown below.
