Mr Justice Charles has released practical guidance in order to provide helpful suggestions as to how practitioners might consider enhancing the participation of P in proceedings in the Court of Protection. Whilst this guidance is primarily directed towards health and welfare cases in the Court, it is also likely to be of assistance in some, but by no means all, property and affairs cases. The guidance is not prescriptive. It is suggestive only. It is not a required checklist of all matters for consideration in all cases. Instead it is a list of suggestions for consideration by those representing P and also other parties, including statutory agencies, as to how P’s participation in proceedings might be enhanced.
