Re G (Adult); London Borough of Redbridge v G and others

Mental health – Patient. G, the patient, was an old and frail lady of 94 who came to the United Kingdom from St Lucia. She had had a full and independent life. In a previous Court of Protection decision, the court decided that G lacked capacity under the Mental Capacity Act 2005. Further investigation was needed to decide how her best interests would be met and her comfort and safety assured and whether the individuals, who had insinuated themselves into her home as carers, needed to be removed. The Court of Protection ordered that it was not in G's best interests that the individuals remained in her home and that it was in G's best interests for her to receive a package of care from carers commissioned by the authority in accordance with G's care plan.
