If we deem that the person being assessed may have significant difficulty in understanding the contract they are entering into with us, then the referrer or a third party must make payment for the service using their own funds.
We reserve the right to decline a payment from any person that we feel might not have the mental capacity to understand our terms and conditions, and do not condone third parties accessing the funds of those who may not have the mental capacity to manage their financial affairs (without the legal authority to do so, in line with s42 of The Care Act 2014).
Thornton & Lee do not provide second opinions on Mental Capacity assessments, or Best Interests decisions completed by health staff for inpatients on a hospital ward, nor those completed as part of care planning or safeguarding enquiries by the Local Authority. If you are unhappy about the outcome of a hospital based or Local Authority completed Mental Capacity assessment or Best Interests decision we suggest you explore the complaints procedure of the organisation involved.
