Gaddum Advocacy (Manchester Advocacy Hub) has introduced a delay to all allocation for Care Act, IMCA and DOLS services. Cases will be allocated based on Care Act and IMCA availability. During this delay time we would like to direct all referrers to the Mental Capacity Act Code of Practice 10.3:
Has the individual who is deemed to lack capacity (after capacity assessment has been carried out) have no one to represent them or no one who is appropriate to consult?
Situations where an urgent decision is needed can proceed without an IMCA being in attendance, therefore decisions made in the best interest of the individual can be made to avoid delay. (10.46/10.47/10.57).
Relating to DOLS, we would encourage that family and friends are in the first instance spoken to regarding the DOLS and Relevant Person’s Representative role.
