Let solicitors do their own work

I was extremely annoyed by Dr Dewsbury's advice regarding ensuring that a signed consent form was legally valid (Features,

April 12). Surely it is up to the solicitor obtaining the consent to satisfy the criteria listed by Dr Dewsbury?

If this is not the case then is it not the solicitor who is legally liable? I do not feel I should be doing the solicitors' work for them.
