The new Mental Capacity Act brings together capacity and consent into a single legislative framework. The Department of Health have been developing draft codes of practice and have recently published a draft code for pre-consultation.

In light of the impact on doctors across all branches of practice, we are hosting a workshop with Julian Sheather, specialist advisor at the BMA, to begin looking at the practical issues of this new legislation and answer any questions you may have.


This workshop is open to members and non-members.

Email Heather to book your place and advise of any special dietary requirements.
