Mental Capacity Assessments are used to form a judgement on an individual’s ability (or ‘capacity’) to make a specific decision. All assessments should adhere to the Mental Capacity Act’s five core principles, with reasonable adjustments to help an individual process information. 

The Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS) will soon be replaced by the Liberty Protection Safeguards (LPS). This change is designed to support a wider range of vulnerable people who do not have capacity for their care arrangements.

We offer bespoke Mental Capacity training services for healthcare professionals, designed to support capacity and bring your assessments up to ‘gold standard’. We can also conduct Mental Capacity Assessments on your behalf, including difficult or complex cases.
