A judgment has been issued by the Court of Protection that addresses a number of issues which affects how court appointed deputies should act.
The judgment provides:
- guidance for deputies who are conducting contentious litigation
- clarity for deputies when managing potential conflicts of interest, especially when a deputy wishes to provide additional services which are to be delivered by someone from within their own business
The Office of the Public Guardian (OPG) has produced new guidance in response to this judgment. To find out the actions required for existing and prospective deputies please read the guidance attached. Or get in touch with your Supervision Caseworker if you have a query in relation to this.
