A local authority v X

Mental health – Court of Protection. The Court of Protection held that it might not be cost-effective to make a final declaration upon X's mental capacity to determine his residence and care in circumstances where the local authority had already confirmed that it could not fund the projected cost of X's care at home and, therefore, there might not be any choices for X to make. The local authority was invited to confirm the minimum level of at-home care it could fund, and X was to reflect on that, before the court would decide whether it was necessary to make a final declaration.
