BMA Award for Headway Mental Capacity Booklet & Wrigleys Author
The BMA Patient Information Special Award for Mental Capacity Resource went to a Headway advice booklet co-written by Wrigleys solicitor Ian Potter.
The booklet, published by the brain injury charity Headway, is entitled ‘Supporting People to Make Decisions: Applying the Mental Capacity Act‘ and was co-written by Wrigleys Court of Protection solicitor, Ian Potter.
The British Medical Association Patient Information Awards 2014 were held at BMA House, London on Monday 22 September 2014, where Professor Ilora Baroness Finlay of Llandaff was the guest of honour.
Jenny Lang, librarian at Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust commented that the booklet ‘covers the legal aspects of this difficult situation in sufficient detail to help and support people going through this situation but with sensitivity and with empathy‘.
The booklet is aimed at anyone concerned about a friend or family member’s ability to make decisions and explains the Mental Capacity Act, as well as how to make applications to the Court of Protection.
The booklet can be purchased directly from Headway here
