Terry is a 50 to 60 year old Black British gentleman residing long-term on a mental health inpatient rehabilitation unit under Section of the Mental Health Act. The IMCA referral was regarding proposed serious medical treatment following a recent diagnosis of lung cancer.

Terry was refusing to undergo this procedure but was deemed to lack capacity to make that decision himself.Read how the IMCA ensured that Terry’s rights under the Mental Capacity Act were upheld and provided independent representation.
