What is a Court of Protection appointed Deputy?


The Mental Capacity Act 2005 provided for a system of court appointed deputies to replace the previous system of receivership in the Court of Protection. Deputies will be able to be appointed to take decisions on welfare, healthcare and financial matters as authorised by the Court of Protection. They will only be appointed if the Court cannot make a one-off decision to resolve the issues.
