Testing, capacity and COVID-19 – shedinar

I have recorded a shedinar under the auspices of the National Mental Capacity Forum on testing for COVID-19 with Chelle Farnan and Dr Elisabeth Alton.  The webinar looks at the law, dilemmas and good practice in testing, focusing in particular on those with impaired decision-making capacity.

The DHSC’s Emergency MCA DOLS guidance which we note has a reference to testing in the additional section published here.  More detailed (unofficial) guidance as to the law can be found in the 39 Essex Chambers Rapid Response Guidance note here.

A useful video showing what a swab test actually is and how one is carried out can be found here.
