Factors to be considered in determining whether patient objects to treatment
[[64J.—(1) In assessing for the purposes of this Part whether he has reason to believe that a patient objects to treatment, a person shall consider all the circumstances so far as they are reasonably ascertainable, including the patient's behaviour, wishes, feelings, views, beliefs and values.
(2) But circumstances from the past shall be considered only so far as it is still appropriate to consider them.]
