National Mental Capacity Forum: Chair’s annual report
Ilora Finlay, Professor Baroness Finlay of Llandaff, Chair of the National Mental Capacity Forum has published her annual report for 2017.
Professor Baroness Finlay of Llandaff writes 'The last year has seen the 10th anniversary of the Mental Capacity Act 2005 (MCA) being implemented in October 2007. This anniversary was marked by many teams across England and Wales who work with the MCA on a daily basis. The second year of the National Mental Capacity Forum has seen continuing progress in embedding the principles of the MCA, raising awareness of its wide application and in developing tools to promote the Act and its workings. Notable work in the financial and banking sector has been the widespread development of guidelines and accompanying training for front line staff on providing services to people who are vulnerable.'
