UPDATED GUIDANCE Coronavirus (COVID-19): looking after people who lack mental capacity

Updates have been made to the main guidance attachment, in particular to the ‘Emergency public health powers’ section. The format of the attachment has also been changed to ensure it’s accessible. Three (3) new attachments have been added to the page: additional guidance, annex A and an easy read.
