Deprivation of Liberty after Cheshire West: key questions for social workers and medical practitioners

Alex Ruck Keene

I have, with my fellow Mental Capacity Law Newsletter editors, put together a guide for the benefit of front-line social work and medical staff as to the implications of the Cheshire West judgment. It does not purport to answer all the legal questions, but will at least hopefully serve to highlight to staff circumstances in which they will need to be seeking legal advice.

The full guide can be downloaded here.

The guide will be published in the Thirty Nine Essex Street Mental Capacity Law Newsletter (editors Alex Ruck Keene, Victoria Butler-Cole, Neil Allen and Michelle Pratley). The guide has been reproduced here with permission of the copyright owner.

The views expressed by contributing authors are not necessarily those of Family Law or Jordan Publishing and should not be considered as legal advice.
