The Supreme Court definitively pronounces upon best interests, available options, and case management before the Court of Protection


CategoryNews Author Neil Allen, Alexander Ruck Keene Date

In N v ACCG [2017] UKSC 22, handed down this morning, the Supreme Court has given the definitive pronouncement as to what the Court of Protection should do in the face of a dispute between P (or their family) and the providers or funders of health or social services as to what services are provided for them.

For the judgment, see here, for the press summary see here, and for a fuller comment on the Court of Protection Handbook website see here. Neil Allen and Alex Ruck Keene both appeared in the case.

We also draw your attention to the fact that Alex’s briefing on the Law Commission’s Mental Capacity and Deprivation of Liberty Report and draft Bill is now available as a podcast on our website here.
