File Size: 1mb    Key Document Click here to see more information about the document

Guidance to staff and members is available in the Council's Constitution (page 155 - 160).

The public are entitled to demand of Local Government Officers and Members, conduct of a high standard. Public confidence in their integrity would be shaken were there the least suspicion that they could in any way be influenced by improper motives. It is a serious criminal offence for officers or members to receive or give any gift, loan, fee, reward or advantage for doing or not doing anything or showing favour or disfavour to any person in an official capacity. If an allegation is made in such circumstances, the burden of proof will fall upon the officer or member to show that they have not in any way been influenced by improper motives. For this reason it is most important for the Council to set clear guidance for all employees and members.

Guardianship under the MHA 1983 Policy
File Size: 620kb    Key Document Click here to see more information about the document

The purpose of guardianship is to enable patients to receive care in the community when it cannot be provided without the use of compulsory powers. It provides an authoritative framework for working with a patient to keep him/her safe whilst achieving as independent a life as possible. Where it is used it must be part of the patient’s overall care and treatment plan.

Guardianship is focussed on social care needs and the patient’s welfare. If the need for compulsory powers is primarily in relation to medical treatment Supervised Community Treatment, if available, may be more appropriate.
