No, it is the patient’s right to withdraw consent, refuse treatment or ask for
treatment to be stopped after it has started. You must acknowledge their right to
so this and follow their wishes.
However, you should also explain the consequences or risks or not continuing the
treatment and ensure that the patient know that they are responsible for any future
problems which arise as a result of not completing the treatment. All discussions
you have with the patient should be recorded in their notes.
