What is the legal test used for assessing an item specific capacity assessment?
The legal tests used in item specific assessments will depend on the question that you instruct us to assessed. We may use a combination of the Mental Capacity Act (2005) and the two-stage test of capacity, as well as case law relevant to the specific issue being addressed. At TSF Assessments Ltd we continually keep up to date with relevant case law.
In order to complete a thorough assessment, we will request information from you relevant to the decision being assessed. This information will be kept strictly confidential and used to develop questions for the assessment and to verify the answers given.
The assessment can take place either by video link or face to face depending on your location. We will be guided by you to the best time to assess and whether you need a supporting person in the assessment. We also take into consideration any communication needs and adapt the assessment accordingly. The assessment will take the format of a conversation rather that it being a formal test.
