Health and care decisions

Lasting Powers of Attorney for Health and Care Decisions (LPA for Health and Care) and Advance Decision Making

You may wish to ensure that when you can no longer make decisions about your health or care,  someone you trust to is able to make  those decisions for you. You may also want to ensure that your wishes in relation to future treatment or care are known in advance by health professionals and carers.

If so, it is important to ensure that you get advice about what the Mental Capacity Act says about certain decisions delegated to an Attorney under an LPA for Health and Care, the nature and effect of advance decisions and the interaction of the two:
