Patient and public awareness events on the Mental Capacity Act in Beckenham Nov & Dec 2015

Bromley CCG are holding two patient and public awareness events on the Mental Capacity Act.  The dates are as follows: 

  • 18 November – 6:00pm – 7:30pm – Beckenham Beacon, Harry Lyne Room
  • 8 December – 09:30am – 11:00am – Beckenham Beacon, Meeting Room C

 The Mental Capacity Act is about empowering people to make their own decisions and also how they can make their own wishes known and respected, once they are no longer able to consent for themselves.

These could be people who may have more permanent issues related to capacity such as dementia, learning disabilities, had a stroke, brain injuries  and people who may have more temporary issues related to capacity due to mental health problems or other illnesses. 

Bromley CCG has a responsibility or ensure that we commission services that offer high levels of quality and treatment.  A fundamental element of the commissioning process is that providers understand the Act, apply it to daily practice, have mechanisms in place to monitor their compliance and can demonstrate that the Act is embedded throughout the organisation.
