Best Interest Assessments

LDOT can provide independent Mental Capacity Assessments and/or best interest service for DoLS commissioners for clients who may be out of the funding local authorities own area, and Mental Capacity Assessments for professional deputies.

We can offer a chair person service to best interest decisions to ensure adherence to the Mental Capacity Act 2005.

Our best interest assessments are also extended to LA’s and CCG’s who are responsible to commission community deprivation of liberty safeguards for supported living or own home placements which require an application to the court of protection. We will complete the COP3 application on your behalf.

We provide best interest and mental capacity training to services who would like to increase their knowledge, understanding, application and practice.
