Are you a clinician or other healthcare professional involved with consenting and treating patients with SACT?
We are working with Guy’s and St. Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust to produce national standardised SACT regimen-specific consent forms.
Endorsed by the National Chemotherapy Board, we want to support clinicians in ensuring all patients are fully informed when consenting to SACT.
The National Chemotherapy Board has also issued guidance for the introduction of the national SACT regimen-specific forms by individual chemotherapy providers.
The consent forms and guidance document are available to download in PDF format. Forms are grouped by tumour-site.

The programme is being led by a dedicated CRUK-funded oncology pharmacist at Guys’ and St. Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust.
All forms are independently checked by an oncology/haematology pharmacist, oncology/haematology consultant and member of the National Chemotherapy Board.
