Using the Mental Capacity Act in the Community

Hounslow and Richmond Community Healthcare NHS Trust (HRHC) have produced a new training film aimed at health and social care professionals and carers. The film aims to explain the importance of consent to treatment in a simple ‘show how to know how’ format, and uses possible scenarios to demonstrate the process for applying the MCA and  making a decision in a person's best interests. 

 

For more information about the film, visit the HRHC website.
