Consultation on MCA Code of Practice opened
Ministry of Justine (MoJ) has opened a consultation on revisions to the Code of Practice (COP) for the Mental Capacity Act.
COP is a key document supporting the MCA with practical guidance. The COP illustrates how the Act will operate on a day-to-day basis, alongside offering examples of best practice to both carers and practitioners, who have a formal duty to adhere to the code. It also serves as a fundamental piece of guidance to friends and family of the individual, to enable them to better understand the practical insight the Act offers to those who lack capacity.
The consultation closes on the 7th March 2019.
