On Wednesday 28 September, we’re meeting at 4pm in room 2007/4 (Law, Highfield) to discuss the ‘Adults With Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000 – Consultation On Certification Of Incapacity For Medical Treatment, with a view to formulating and submitting a response on behalf of HEAL.

This consultation seeks views on four issues on Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000 Part 5 in relation to medical treatment. The issues are:  1.widening the range of institutions which can offer training; 2.whether dentists should be required to undertake training for this purpose; 3.whether multiple section 47 medical treatment certificates should be required in some circumstances; 4.and whether other medical practitioners not specified should be enabled to certify incapacity for medical treatment.
