Seamless integration of medical and legal expertise
Impairment of mental capacity is often a symptom of a serious health condition that needs further specialist attention, which Halcyon Doctors, due to their outstanding clinical expertise, can seamlessly provide. This is also important given the imperative to maximise capacity – mental capacity may be regained for example after treatment for depression or dementia.
Another way to increase the probability of affirmed mental capacity at the time of assessment is to adapt to the individual’s unique circumstances. If, for example, someone is known to be most lucid at a particular time of day, then a Halcyon Doctor will always try to plan the appointment at such time.
