At Glaisyers we know how stressful it can be if a person can’t make decisions for themselves about their health or welfare. You might want to make a decision for them or there could be a difference of opinion between family members, or with a medical practitioner. If you have an agreement that can’t be reached the Court of Protection might have to make the decision in the person’s best interests.
If you are an Attorney or Deputy for someone, the law probably doesn’t allow you to make decisions about their health or welfare. The Court may need to make the decision unless they made a Lasting Power of Attorney for health and welfare.
Our Court of Protection specialists will help you to work out which decisions you can make. We will deal with your situation sensitively and will deal with all of the practicalities if you need to apply to Court.
