Mental health – Persons who lack capacity. The Court of Protection made rulings on the care of the first respondent, a vulnerable young woman with Autistic Spectrum Disorder. The court gave permission for the first respondent to be assessed by a female clinical psychologist and emphasised that cases that could necessitate restrictions in areas where adults had capacity needed to be heard by High Court Judges in the Court of Protection.
