Book Description

23 April 2007
The Mental capacity Act 2005 provides a statutory framework for people who lack the capacity to make decisions for themselves, or for people who want to make provision for a time when they will be unable to make their own decisions. This code of practice, which has statutory force, provides information and guidance about how the Act should work in practice. It explains the principles behind the Act, defines when someone is incapable of making their own decisions and explains what is meant by acting in someone's best interests. It describes the role of the new Court of Protection and the role of Independent Mental Capacity Advocates and sets out the role of the Public Guardian. It also covers medical treatment and the way disputes can be resolved.

Like all HMSO publications this can be downloaded, legitimately and free from the government's own websites.

As a matter of note, the Code is workable, but noticably doesn't make any comment about the Bournewood provisions, probably the most complex part of the act (as ammended by the MHA 2007). the code as it stands promises this in future incarnations, and indeed the code of practice for the new MHA does address this to an extent.

So, here is a coherent, but incomplete, glossy magazine, that is for sale at almost 15, but can be downloaded as a pdf for free. Should you buy it? well, it would be an irrational choice, but one you are quite free to make! Myself, I'd save paper, post and money, and instead buy Richard Jones' MHAManual.

4.0 out of 5 stars MCA Review 25 Mar 2009
Verified Purchase
One of the few remaining places where you can still obtain a written copy of the guide to the MCA rather than downloading it. A reasonably easy read, although rather a lot of it

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading for carers 16 April 2014
Important reading for anyone interested in mental health. I found it useful to be able to refer to sections I needed clear clarification on. Is clear, easy reading and good examples given throughout the book to help understanding of a situation. If you are experiencing any situation with a person you care for then this book is for you. Definately a good buy.
