The Mental Capacity Act 2005 came into force in stages from April 2007 and will be implemented in full on 1 October 2007. The Act impacts on approximately 2 million people. It introduced new decision-making mechanisms which allow financial, welfare and healthcare decisions to be taken on behalf of persons lacking the mental capacity to make such decisions such as the making of advance refusals of treatment (a form of living will); and the creation of lasting powers of attorney, so allowing the appointee to make decisions on finance, health and welfare after the donor has become incompetent to make the decisions themselves.
The new edition of this popular Guide, has been thoroughly updated to take account of the impact of the Mental Health Act 2007, new Codes of Practice to the MCA 2005, and new Court of Protection Rules.

This portable guide contains a copy of the Act, the Code of Practice, Regulations regarding Lasting Powers of Attorney and the Court Rules for the Court of Protection. This is an invaluable resource for all lawyers and professionals working in this complex area.
