There was a dispute as to whether the conclusions of a second independent expert psychiatrist should be accepted, and final declarations made in accordance with those conclusions.
The court had to decide whether the P had capacity to decide where he resides, the care he receives, to have contact with others and access to the internet and social media. The court concluded that he did have capacity to make those decisions.
Appeal against a declaration that the P had capacity to consent to sexual relations. The appeal was allowed, the declaration set aside and the matter was remitted to the judge for reconsideration.
