The controversial Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill has been further criticized by care organisations.
New analysis of the legislation identified “deeply flawed assumptions” that could lead to badly implemented law.
Voluntary Organisations Disability Group (VODG) Chief Executive, Dr Rhidian Hughes, said: “This new analysis highlights deeply flawed assumptions underpinning Government’s mental capacity reforms. We continue to urge Government to work with the sector to get this Bill into much better shape in order to understand the human, social and financial consequences that arise from its proposed approach.”
