When are children old enough to understand medical information? When are they mature enough to make wise decisions in their best interests? This book explores these questions through detailed qualitative research. It is based on in-depth interviews with children undergoing surgery, their parents and many of the staff caring for them in four city hospitals. In their own words, the child patients challenge many of the accepted ideas about their rights, interests and abilities.

"This volume should be required reading for all health care professionals who work with children: for teachers; for parents; forsocial workers, and for those how form policy, and debate ethical issues surrounding consent." - TES "...a validand interesting contribution to the growing awareness of children as social actors, and of the need for researchers to hear children'svoices directly in order to learn about their hopes, fears, expectations and experiences." - Disability & Society
