Lasting Power of Attorney - Health and Welfare
This document allows you to nominate up to six people to act as your attorney(s) and make decisions about your health and social welfare in the event that you can no longer do so yourself. You can also set restrictions and leave guidance on what decisions they can make.
Once completed, this document must be registered with the Office of the Public Guardian (OPG) before it can be used, and the registration forms you need to do this are included with your Health and Welfare Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA).
A separate fee will be payable to the Office of the Public Guardian. You can find details of the fees payable on their website.
Your attorney(s) will only be able to act when you lack the capacity to do so yourself, for example, if you are ill, unconscious or because of the onset of a condition such as dementia.
