I am working as part of our Carer's group on a training project for the Royal College of Psychiatrists. The objective is to input some Carers' perspectives into the course material. The course, which will be run for the first time on the 30th May as a pilot, is all about the Deprivation of Liberties Safeguards which will be an addition to the Mental Capacity Act 2005. I am trying to talk with a carer who has recently had experience with the assessment of mental capacity of the person they care for to gain some feel for what actually happened. Any information gathered will of course be treated as confidential, only used in a general fashion and with the carer's permission. I can perhaps explain more fully if necessary. Thank you.
