Pregnancy services and the Mental Capacity Act

On 2nd November the British Pregnancy Advisory Service (Merseyside) was rated inadequate by the CQC and placed into special measures. Reasons for the inadequate rating included: ‘Staff did not understand how and when to assess whether a patient had the capacity to make decisions about their care. We saw no evidence of mental capacity assessment for patients identified with cognitive impairment.’

The report can be found here.
