Many questions on consenting process

Someone said:

Following several recent verdicts by the Singapore Medical Council, doctors are experiencing many uncertainties on what qualifies as taking consent (MOH conducting thorough review of informed consent, March 3).

First, who should take consent, or be allowed to do so, when patients are managed by a team?

Should the senior doctors of the team be responsible? Or can a junior member like a resident or an intern be allowed to take consent for a complex operation?

Second, what types of procedures are exempted from official consent?
