Re DGP

Mental health – Patient. The respondents applied for reconsideration of the decision appointing D's daughter L, a United States' resident, as the deputy for her property and affairs. The Court of Protection, in dismissing the application, held that the fact that someone lived outside the jurisdiction should not be an impediment to their appointment as deputy if, in all other respects, they were the most suitable candidate to be appointed and it was in the patient's best interests. In the circumstances, L's appointment was in D's best interests.
