Mental Capacity Act & Duty of Candour

The Mental Capacity Act (MCA) is designed to protect and empower people who may lack the mental capacity to make their own decisions about their care and treatment. It applies to people aged 16 and over. It is designed to protect and give power to vulnerable people who lack capacity. Anyone caring or working with someone who lacks capacity could be involved in assessment.


The legislation is designed to support those in health and social care to assess capacity themselves, rather than rely on expert testing – you should use the two stage test.


Assessing Mental Capacity can be overwhelming for some professionals and good quality training is key. At Taye training we embed your MCA policy into the session and tailor our training to use examples and case studies relevant to you customer group. We ensure that when each individual completed the training leaves feeling more confident undertaking assessments.
