Mental Health Act and Mental Capacity Act pocket guides now available

MCA Act leaflet

EEAST has developed a pocket guide to support all patient-facing staff about both the Mental Health Act and the Mental Capacity Act.

They include easily accessible information on both acts and form part of a workstream from the National Ambulance Mental Health Group.

They have been created following the success of similar pocket books that have been made available throughout the Trust .

Area Clinical Lead for mental health Duncan Moore said: “I hope that the simple format of the pocket guide will support all staff to both apply and understand the respective acts when needed.”

The pocket books will be available in all Trust localities over the coming weeks and staff should get theirs from their line manager.
