Author information

  • 1Nottingham Law School, Nottingham Trent University.


This article outlines a research study that sought staff views on whether they needed further training and guidance on the Mental Capacity Act 2005, and if so, on which aspects they needed more guidance. As a result, a new publication, Guidance for Adult Community Services Staff on the Mental Capacity Act 2005, was produced to give practical, easy-to-use advice. The guidance is summarised here.
