useful, but make sure you know about all the alternatives,
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.
