Assessment of Mental Capacity (4th Edition)Today, Thursday 29th October, sees the publication of the latest edition of the Assessment of Mental Capacity. Jointly published by the British Medical Association and the Law Society this book aims to support doctors and lawyers by giving them:

  • a fuller understanding of the law in all situations where an assessment of capacity may be needed
  • clarification of the roles of both professions
  • an aid to communication both between them and with the person being assessed

The book costs £49.95, but BMA members are entitled to a 20% discount. They just need to enter the discount code DLMC/G when purchasing the book from the Law Society’s online bookshop – www.lawsociety.org.uk/bookshop

We, the BMA Library, have three loan copies available for BMA members to borrow via our Postal Loans Service.
