News article published on: 24th September 2018

Private client lawyer and specialist Court of Protection lawyer, Suzanna Baker, recently spoke to the BBC concerning applications to ‘The Court of Protection’.

The Court of Protection make decisions on financial or welfare matters for people who lack the mental capacity to make such decisions. The Court are responsible for deciding whether someone has the mental capacity to make a particular decision for themselves. The Court can also appoint deputies to make ongoing decisions for people who lack mental capacity.

The BBC were reporting on the case of 21 year old Steven Wanna. Steven suffered serious brain injuries following a hit and run in February 2017. His mother would now like him to return home and continue his treatment, rather than remain at a unit 40 miles away in Northampton. Oxfordshire County Council are making an application to The Court of Protection to become his deputy and make decisions  on his behalf and is his best interests. A move which is mother objects to.
