What can Deputies not do? 

Deputies cannot do certain things on behalf of the person who has lost capacity, without express permission of the Court by way of a Court Order: 
 
Make a Will on their behalf; 
 
Create a trust for the person; 
 
Decide to physically restrain the person (unless to prevent them from being harmed or coming to harm); 
 
Make a decision contradicting a decision made by an Attorney appointed under a Lasting Power of Attorney; 
 
Refuse consent to any medical treatment which would help keep the person alive; 
 
Make decisions about who the person can or cannot communicate with; 
 
If a Deputy is ever unsure about whether they can make a decision or carry out an act on behalf of the person who has lost capacity, the Court of Protection will be able to offer more guidance.
