Abstract

As the Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill 2017-19 reaches the committee stage of parliamentary scrutiny, NHS Providers has produced a briefing on the Bill, which is available at the link below.  

NHS Providers supports policy and legislative measures to better enable trusts to apply the Mental Health Act and the Mental Capacity Act in a consistent and transparent way that protects patients’ and services users’ rights and supports high quality care. It is paramount that changes made by this Bill are in step with the wider transformation work underway within the NHS.
