39 Essex Chambers, 'Mental Capacity Report' (issue 118, December 2021)

Essex newsletter 118.pdf

Mental capacity law newsletter "Highlights this month include: (1) In the Health, Welfare and Deprivation of Liberty Report: the Supreme Court takes on capacity, learning to learn, and capacity and illicit substances; (2) In the Practice and Procedure Report: the Court of Appeal’s concern about judicial visits, and reporting restrictions and accountability; (3) In the Wider Context Report: Parole Board guidance on mental capacity, and how consumer law can help navigate care home dilemmas; (4) In the Scotland Report: a truly shocking report of institutional inhumanity, and the extent of incapacitation under s.67 of the Adults with Incapacity Act 2000. Because there’s not a huge amount to report, there is no Property and Affairs Report this month. However, a reminder of this consultation currently underway, closing on 12 January 2022 about third-party access to limited funds."
