The Mental Capacity Act 2005 came into force in 2007 and sets out who can make decisions on behalf of an adult who lacks capacity and in what circumstances they can act.
Friction can often arise if health and social services make key decisions which the client and their family deem unnecessarily or not in the best interests of those concerned. This is why private client practitioners must have a firm grasp of the MCA 2005 and the decision making process, if they are to assist clients during what can be the most trying period of their lives.
