MCA/BABICM Report

Following the House of Lords decision to review the Mental Capacity Act Mark Holloway of Head First coordinated an initial letter to Lord Hardie QC chair of the select committee in October 2013.  A number of BABICM members and other well-known ABI professionals supported and contributed to this letter and to the ensuing process.  BABICM also made a submission to the House of Lords Select Committee, including evidence submitted by members and were delighted that this was substantially quoted within the report produced by the committee.

The dialogue established good links and resulted in Mark being invited to make a presentation at the Department of Health.  This invitation resulted in this attached report which has again been compiled/coordinated by Mark Holloway with significant input and support from a wide number of other interested parties.  The report details the recommendations for action following the House of Lords Select Committee – Post Legislative scrutiny report into the Mental Capacity Act and was presented to the Department of Health on Wednesday 17 September 2014.  Their response was positive and wide circulation of the report was advised.

The report can be accessed here.
