Care In The Time Of Covid

Care In The Time Of Covid

Autumn 2021 update on the effect of Covid 19 on care home residents, issues of vaccination and Court of Protection practice


Restrictions on family visits and access to the community for residents of care homes during the Covid 19 pandemic have resulted in hardship and isolation for many. In this free webinar held on 7 September 2021, Rory O’Ryan and Elizabeth Mottershaw of Garden Court North Chambers consider the prevailing position at the time of the seminar for those lacking capacity to make decisions as to residence and care, in particular:

  • best interests decision making; balancing health risks to P and other residents vs package of care at home;
  • update on CoP decisions on medical treatment, including Covid 19 vaccination;
  • current Court of Protection practice and procedure in the light of the pandemic.

Target Audience

This webinar is aimed at legal practitioners and those working with them, with an assumed basic knowledge of the topic area.


The recording and slides were available for three months following the event.
