I have a client who will be applying for a finance deputy order in due course. She also wishes to apply for a welfare order at the same time as P lacks capacity to make any decisions herself. Specifically, she will need to go into care soon and she will receive some medical treatment in due course also so D would like to be part of those decisions.
It is my understanding that the COP doesn’t like to issue general welfare orders and it could be that a request for the above is rejected. Does anyone know of any other route open to D or is a court deputy order the only way?
