We’ve just completed a short film for the Department of Health and the Social Care Institute for Excellence explaining the Mental Capacity Act. See the trailer version here (2.5 mins):
The film called ‘Using the Mental Capacity Act’ features a number of people representing different stories and perspectives on how the act can work for them and how it can be useful to us all, now or in the future. It sets out the five principles of the act, making advance decisions and also considers future planning such as lasting powers of attorney.
The full length version can be seen here:
