Mental capacity for medico-legal experts webinar

25 January 2023 @ 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

NRC Medical Experts is hosting an online seminar for clinical colleagues, solicitors, case managers, and associated professionals interested in understanding more about the importance of considering mental capacity as part of the medico-legal assessment process.

From capacity for litigation, property, health and welfare to contact with others, social media and sexual relationships, medico-legal experts must give this area very detailed consideration.

Led by Huw Ponting, partner at Enable Law, with NRC founder, Dr Edmund Bonikowski, the webinar will provide attendees with insights into an area of legal practice Huw describes as ‘the most dynamically changing area of my legal practice’.

The free webinar will include:

  • A brief overview of the Mental Capacity Act
  • Hugh Ponting will share his experience as to how medical experts have historically approached capacity in their report, and update attendees with recent developments in the law; particularly around Health and Welfare issues and not just finance and property, litigation and testamentary capacity.
  • To conclude, the speakers will provide their views on how medico-legal experts should be instructed to respond to this topic going forward.
