4.0 out of 5 stars MCA Review
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

2.0 out of 5 stars useful, but make sure you know about all the alternatives
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...

This review is from: Mental Capacity Act 2005 code of practice: [2007 final edition]: Code of Practice to the Mental Capacity Act 2005 (Paperback)
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading for carers, 16 April 2014
This review is from: Mental Capacity Act 2005 code of practice: [2007 final edition]: Code of Practice to the Mental Capacity Act 2005 (Paperback)
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.

This review is from: Mental Capacity Act 2005 code of practice: [2007 final edition]: Code of Practice to the Mental Capacity Act 2005 (Paperback)
A very easy read for a code of practice, relating to a new law.You don't need the Act just this book.
It could have been improved by an index
