The 6 most common mistakes people make when
assessing mental capacity
The average turn around time for the GP is 4 months. At TSF we know that time is of the essence that is why we look to turn assessments around as quickly as possible.
We won’t even consider someone as an assessor unless they have at least 4 years' experience of assessing mental capacity in a clinical setting.
We are the only national provider of mental capacity assessments that can boast a comprehensive network of assessors that covers the UK.
Whilst a fixed fee solution may seem more expensive at first glance, they are better value in the long run.
Named as 'Mental Capacity Assessors - firm of the year' by Lawyer Monthly, we believe that every individual is a person, that every person has the right to be the best that they can be. Through our core values of empathy, compassion and knowledge we ensure that everyone is treated with respect and dignity and supported to achieve their optimum.
We have over 50 assessors across the UK giving us truly national coverage. 99% of all our assessments occur in the individual's home at a time of their choosing. This enables us to ensure they feel safe and to ensure they can be at their optimum during the assessment. All of our assessors are either health or social care professionals and they are all recognised by the Court of Protection and the Office of the Public Guardian.
The Court of Protection team at Slater and Gordon have instructed TSF on a large number of cases to assess mental capacity both in relation to property and affairs matters and in relation to testamentary capacity. The assessors they use are very considerate when dealing with our clients. The quality of their reports is not compromised by the quick turnaround. The service is in our view very good value for money and we would not hesitate to recommend TSF to clients and contacts alike.
The COP Deputy Court Order has now been issued and we would like to express our thanks to you for your prompt and competent service in carrying out the capacity assessment. It has been a pleasure too do business with TSF consultants. Please pass our thanks and best wishes to Ged Carney for his friendly and competent service.
This is just to thank you so very much for coming and making my Father feel so comfortable and being so patient. I hope it reassures potential clients that your service provides a friendly, relaxed and yet professional approach to what otherwise could be perceived as a somewhat complex and daunting process
I have used Tim to provide a medical assessment for capacity and to act as a certificate provider on a lasting power of attorney. The matter was time sensitive and Tim provided an efficient and professional service and was sensitive to the circumstances of the client and his family.
With a busy caseload in community psychiatry, I am often asked if I know of a reliable, knowledgeable and efficient service for assessing mental capacity. With first hand experience of Tim's assessments of people with (or without) reduced mental capacity, I have no hesitation in recommending this service.
TSF were the answer to a prayer! An elderly relative with early stage dementia was advised by the family solicitor to get an assessment in advance of completing some legal papers. We found it very hard to locate someone with the necessary skills and were feeling despondent and frustrated. TSF provided an incredibly professional and fast service. Every stage of the assessment process was expertly explained and the actual assessment was sensitively handled. We can't recommend them highly enough.
