The Public Guardian can ask a Court of Protection visitor to write a report about a deputy or attorney. The Office of the Public Guardian can release the report to the police, a local authority or another Court of Protection visitor.
The Public Guardian can also let someone who was interviewed for the report see a copy, including:
- a deputy
- a person who lacks mental capacity and has a deputy
- a donor
- an attorney
- anyone else who has been interviewed, eg, a relative or carer
This practice note explains who can see the report and what they need to do to get a copy.
