For those familiar with the Mental Health Act Manual, this will be like an old friend in slimmer trim. Admittedly, here is a work in progress, as the Act is still in infancy. Set out here then is the full text of the act, interpretations based upon the common law relating to capacity before the Act, and the erudite but brief interprettion familiar from the other work.
This should become as indispensible as the first book to psychiatrists and lawyers alike.
