Revising the Code of Practice

The Ministry of Justice has announced that a consultation is underway looking at revising the MCA Code of Practice. The original work was launched in 2008 to coincide with the act’s full implementation. Some 11 years have now passed and our understanding the act has developed so it is natural to want to revisit and update the Code of Practice.

They say “The call for evidence will aim to seek views and contributions from a range of stakeholders, to develop a robust evidence base which will inform revisions made to the Mental Capacity Act Code of Practice”

The online survey can be completed at the Ministry of Juctice website and it is vital that as many practitioners from all sectors participate and complete.
