Book Summary:

The Mental Capacity Act 2005 legislated provisions to empower and protect vulnerable people who are not able to make their own decisions. Laid before Parliament in February 2007, this Code provides guidance on how the provisions of the Act will work on a daily basis for those caring for, or working with, people lacking mental capacity. The code is important for professionals - such as doctors and social workers but family, friends and unpaid carers will also find it useful. Subject to the views of Parliament, the Code will be formally issued in April 2007, and certain groups of people will then be legally required to have regard to the Code when acting or making decisions on behalf of people lacking capacity. Those who are not legally required to have regard to the Code are still encouraged to use it as a good practice guide. The Code incorporates good practice and case studies, along with the flexibility to apply the principles to the particular circumstances of the situation. The Code has been laid in draft form before both Houses of Parliament. It will be formally issued and published with a different ISBN, once it has lain for a 40-day period during which neither House has resolved not to approve it. The projected publication date for the formally issued code is on or around 20th April 2007. Braille, audio and large print versions of the final version will be available in both English and Welsh.

Book Summary:

The Mental Capacity Act 2005 provides a statutory framework for acting and making decisions on behalf of individuals who lack the mental capacity to do so for themselves. It introduced a number of laws to protect these individuals and ensure that they are given every chance to make decisions for themselves. The Act has recently been supplemented with new provisions pertaining to those who need to be accommodated under care and treatment regimes that may have the effect of depriving them of their liberty, but who lack the capacity to consent. This Code of Practice provides guidance and information for professionals implementing the deprivation of liberty safeguards legislation on a daily basis. In some cases, this will be paid staff, in others, those who have been appointed by law to represent individuals who lack capacity to make decisions for themselves (such as deputies or donees of a Lasting Power of Attorney).The Code incorporates good practice and demonstrates how the principles of the Act can be applied to those who have been deprived of their liberty for their own safety, or for the safety of others.
