First of all, the right of a juvenile patient to medical information belongs to constitutional rights because it is derived from Article 30 of the Polish Constitution which refers to the inherent and inalienable dignity of a person and a citizen. Pursuant to Article 9 of the Act of 06.11.2008 on Patient’s Rights and the Ombudsman for Patient’s Rights, a patient is entitled to information about his or her health. Furthermore, a patient, including a juvenile one who is at least 16 years old, or his/her statutory representative have a right to receive from a doctor comprehensible information about the patient’s health, diagnosis, suggested and possible diagnostic and treatment methods, predictable consequences of their use or abandonment, results of treatment and prognosis. The binding legal regulations are aimed at ensuring proper communication between a doctor and a patient, which is obviously indispensable for correct progress of medical treatment.
