Excerpt

The editor would like to thank Hertfordshire County Council Social Services Department for their kind permission to reproduce their Policy and Guidelines in this book.

Michael Gunn would like to point out that since his chapter of this volume; 'Compentency and consent: the importance of decision-making' was written in 1991, there have been many developments. Most notably, the Law Commission has progressed its work on Decision-Making and Mentally Incapacitated Adults, with the production of three new consultation papers: Mentally Incapacitated Adults and Decision-Making: A New Jurisdiction (1993, HMSO); Mentally Incapacitated Adults and Decision-Making: Medical Treatment and Research (1993, HMSO); and Mentally Incapacitated and other Vulnerable Adults; Public Law Protection (1993, HMSO). That chapter should be read in the light of the contribution these papers make to the debate discussed therein, and in the light of the developments indicated therein.
