11 million people over 65 in the UK and around 1 million have some issues with mental capacity. Many illnesses may (but will not always) affect capacity- dementia, depression, and physical illnesses are examples. Early stages of illness may not be easy to identify but can affect capacity, joint working between lawyers and doctors is best in ensuring good practice and when instructing a doctor, lawyers should be expecting a comprehensive report which includes psychiatric and medical evaluation, cognitive assessment, and statement on the specific capacity issue in question.
