A long-term perspective in capacity: in conversation with Dr Janet Weston

In the most recent (slightly snuffly) in conversation, I talk to Dr Janet Weston about her fascinating book Looking after Miss Alexander: Care, Mental Capacity, and the Court of Protection in Mid-Twentieth-Century England (available for free here).   I learn what led her to tell Miss Alexander’s story, what that story tells us about approaches to capacity in the middle of the 20th century, and what it might have to tells us to thinking about contemporary dilemmas.

My review of the book is here.
