Dr Lidiya Angelova on medical autonomy and informed consent

Medical Autonomy and Informed Consent

Dr Angelova has interviewed Nicola Smith from My Medical Choice, about “Informed Consent within the UK Healthcare System” and medical autonomy, in order to raise awareness of the difficulties we face when we need to use the healthcare system for informed consent, and the solutions available to prevent unwanted medical interventions when unable to communicate.

Dr Angelova describes herself as:

A biomedical scientist and a freelance writer. “I write about news not shown in the news. Various sources. Censored information. Inconvenient truth

Firstly, she is very active in exposing the facts behind the media spin over the last few years.

In addition, one of her ambitions is to publish a truly independent medical journal covering studies and reports from genuinely unbiased medical scientists and doctors from all over the world. A publication to rival the Lancet or BMJ is a worthwhile ambition, and I, for one, would be keen to see this published.  However, funding is always an issue for these types of projects, so any help available to get this project off the ground would be most appreciated.

What is a Biomedical Scientist?

A biomedical scientist is a professional who specializes in the study of the biological processes and principles related to human health and disease. These scientists work at the intersection of biology, medicine, and technology, aiming to understand the complex mechanisms of the human body at the molecular, cellular, and systemic levels.

Roles and Responsibilities

Research and Development

One of the primary roles of a biomedical scientist is to conduct research. They delve deep into the intricacies of human biology to discover new ways to prevent, diagnose, and treat diseases. This research can range from studying the genetic basis of a particular disease to developing new therapeutic drugs or medical devices.


Biomedical scientists often work in clinical laboratories, where they analyse samples, such as blood or tissue, to diagnose diseases. Their expertise ensures that patients receive accurate diagnoses, which are crucial for effective treatment.

Collaboration with Medical Professionals

Biomedical scientists frequently collaborate with doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals. Their insights and findings can influence medical practices, treatments, and patient care.

Example – The Pioneering Biomedical Scientist

To better understand the role of a biomedical scientist, consider the story of Dr. Jane, a biomedical scientist who made a groundbreaking discovery. Dr. Jane was researching a rare genetic disorder that had no known cure. After years of meticulous research, she identified a specific gene mutation responsible for the disease. This discovery paved the way for the development of a targeted drug therapy that could potentially cure patients with this disorder. Thanks to Dr. Jane’s dedication and expertise, countless lives were transformed.

The Impact of Biomedical Science

The work of biomedical scientists has a profound impact on society. Their discoveries lead to advancements in medical technology, improved patient care, and a deeper understanding of human biology. As the medical field continues to evolve, the role of biomedical scientists becomes even more crucial.


In conclusion, a biomedical scientist plays a pivotal role in advancing the medical field. Their dedication to research, diagnostics, and collaboration with other healthcare professionals ensures that patients receive the best care possible. As we continue to face new medical challenges, the expertise and contributions of biomedical scientists will remain invaluable.

Informed Consent Within UK Healthcare System


My Medical Choice is not here to judge your decision, it is about empowering people to control their own healthcare.

My Medical Choice is all about your Medical Autonomy in healthcare and making sure the emergency team treating you follows your specific wishes. When used correctly, it is a powerful system that can notify medical teams about allergies, procedures etc., right down to more personalised decisions such as people concerned about mRNA in blood, and/or, wanting a solution to vaccinated blood (as listed in the examples in some articles).
